Coco CHANEL became a courageous, confident, fiesty and brave young woman when she was orphaned after her monther died and her father left her and younger sister at a convent in France. This is a very interesting story, well directed, filmed in beautiful France which demonstrates how CoCo faced each and every hardship in her life with grace and confidence, giving her continued hope for her future. Above all the negative, jealous people, CoCo maintained her focus, her infamous style and her dignity.

A must-see for anyone interested in how CoCo Chanel started in fashion, and for young women to view ways of overcoming hardships in life.

This movie has everything! A true dramatic story - fabulous actors - fabulous fashion! Olivier Sitruk (Boye) rates right up there with Colin Firth in Pride & Prejudice!! This will always be one of my favorites - can't wait to get it!

At first it was difficult to accept Shirley MacLain as the aged Coco Chanel but she grew into it. The flashback scenes of her earliest yrs. were the most compelling parts of this movie. I imagine there are other actresses who may have been more believable as the established & successful Coco, it was only a slight flaw in that I was able to adjust by the end of the movie. It skipped over too many details about her Chanel #5 launch & the legal entanglements, as well as her life during the Nazi occupation of Paris & France, those huge gaps detracted from trom the movie only if one knew the details before watching this movie. For someone kmowing nothing about her life during WWII & the fragrance launch I suppose they would miss it. I would have preferred some scenes covering that & more on her relationships which were a huge part of her life. The actresses pwho played the young versions of Gabrielle were absolutely fabulous. Still giving it five stars despite what seemed like a mis-cast of Shirley MacLain as Coco & important gaps in here life left empty by the movie, because what they did cover, they did it well.

i realize this is but a Lifetime movie, and that Shirley is a big star...but....to not do a French accent while protraying such an iconic, well-known figure, was a mistake. That and the fact that while you're watching Shirley play Coco, you're just watching Shirley in any other part shes ever played. meaning, there was nothing special, elegant or precise about her protrayal of Chanel. this was a truly awful film, very disappointed.

Reading a book about CoCo and saw the trailer for this. I really thought Shirly McClain would overdo the role but it was done well. This turned out to be very close to the book that has been very good.

I loved this movie. I highly recommend it to all fashionistas and to anyone who loves a real love story. A story of a woman of extreme determination and creativity; one who went her own way and by doing so changed fashion forever. Fashion became style which is timeless.
This film was beautifully produced and acted. It provided so many details of Mlle. Chanel's life.

First of all, I love watching movies in bed on my Kindle Fire...so clear. This movie was way more than I expected. I loved it, I cried and I believed it to be a true story. And so worth the price I paid.

Good movie. I saw a different version years ago that focused more on the period when she came out with her perfume. In that movie, she rented a room from a family, and had an affair with the husband. The wife asked her if she ever felt guilty, and she said no.

I also watched the movie Coco Before Chanel which is in French. That is also a very good movie, and starts from the beginning when she was in the orphanage. She was also promiscuous in that movie, more so than this movie. Also, in the other two movies, Boy was married and died on his way back to England. In this movie, he died on his way to France. No big deal, just some differences.
