Coco Before Chanel trailer online
The trailer for Coco avant Chanel aka Coco Before Chanel, has arrived. Starring Audrey Tautou as the famous Coco Chanel from her humble beginnings to the rise of her standing within the fashion world.
Audrey Tautou not only looks the part but she's also a fantastic actress, and if there's nothing else about this project that's got to be the main draw. Of course that's not all, there's a strong supporting cast and an adaptation from the book by Edmonde Charles-Roux (Amazon.co.uk / Amazon.com).
There are a number of other Coco Chanel films on the go at the moment, about various aspects of her life. I do wonder though how well this will do in America, however I think it's certainly set for a big European reception.
Here's a more official blurb for the film:
Audrey Tautou plays the legendary "Coco" Chanel in an enthralling exploration of her early life before she rose to worldwide fame as the most celebrated fashion designer of the 20th Century. We meet the young Gabrielle Chanel, illegitimate daughter of a traveling salesman who learns to sew in a Catholic orphanage before following her singing ambitions lead her to a cabaret club. It is here where Chanel earns the nickname Coco and also where she catches the eye of several high society gentlemen who would ignite her passion and become instrumental in the development of her remarkable career.
Finally the trailer, The Playlist.
