Also, as with most biopics, the movie does turn into a bit of a puff piece about the subject. In this film, Coco Chanel is always the victim, never the aggressor.

Audience Reviews for Coco Chanel

An excellent work of art. Very moving and inspirational. I found myself rooting for Coco as she struggles and works hard to transform herself from a penniless orphan to one of the world's greatest fashion icons of all time. You feel for her so deeply as she longs for love but is never quite able to attain it.

Pretty similar to the movie "Coco Before Chanel" (2009). There were some slight differences, but the storyline was basically the same. I was hoping to see more of Shirley MacLaine, but this focused more on her younger years. The actress who played Coco in her younger years was very good. Overall, it was interesting enough, but I think "Coco Before Chanel" did just as good of a job at telling the story, and it was shorter.

Great movie. I kind of thought it would suck but it was really good. I don't like the Shirley MacLaine Coco Chanel but when she was younger she was much better. This movie was great though, kind of long but pretty interesting.
