Coco Avant Chanel came out the end of July in the U.K. and Coco Before Chanel is hitting U.S. theatres mid-September. In the story of Coco Chanel's rise from obscure beginnings to the heights of the fashion world, Audrey Tautou plays Coco. Anne Fontaine, the director says she cast Audrey as Coco because she looks exactly like Coco in her youth. In this clip Audrey talks about the fashion icon: "She wanted to be free.
