This film received mixed reviews from other critics. I enjoyed it immensely, and think it is well worth seeing. I would also urge you to rent the film Coco Before Chanel, starring Audrey Tautou.
Coco's vibrant personality and beautiful clothing reminded me of the now-deceased Brooke Astor. A little digression: When I was mayor, I introduced Mrs. Astor at an event and mentioned that she had donated $135 million to city charities. She was standing at my side and said, "No, Mayor, it's at least $200 million -- with more to come." She was an indomitable spirit, as was Coco.
