Keira Knightley: 'It's About Time We Saw the World Through Women's Eyes' in Film

Stars Keira Knightley and Dominic West and director Wash Westmoreland stopped by the Variety Studio presented by AT&T to talk about their new film, “Colette,” which premiered at the Sundance Film Festival.

Knightley explained why she was drawn to the starring role of the French novelist, and described the often “one-dimensional” female roles she sees in movies.

“The [female] characters that are often seen on film are nice and supportive, but kind of one-dimensional,” she said. “And I think it’s about time that we saw the world through women’s eyes because I think if we are silenced and you don’t see our stories, then we are put in danger.”
