It doesn't take a fashion expert to know that Coco Chanel was one of the most influential designers and style icons of the 20th century - but this elegant drama takes us back to Chanel's little-known, humble beginnings. After growing up in a strict Catholic orphanage, Coco and her sister Adrienne scrape a living as cabaret singers and seamstresses - until Coco meets a well-heeled Parisian named Balsan, and spots an opportunity to start moving up in the world

What our educators say

"Some of them saw a clip from Wakolda (The German Doctor) on TV recently and really wanted to watch it. So I thought I’d take a chance, not expecting them to watch the whole film but the majority were absolutely gripped. "
