Coco Before Chanel (2009)

PG-13 09/25/2009 (US) DramaHistory 1h 50m

Before she was France's famous mademoiselle…


Several years after leaving the orphanage, to which her father never returned for her, Gabrielle Chanel finds herself working in a provincial bar. She's both a seamstress for the performers and a singer, earning the nickname Coco from the song she sings nightly with her sister. A liaison with Baron Balsan gives her an entree into French society and a chance to develop her gift for designing.
