Goofs

When Boy and Coco are talking in the snow scene the snow does not melt when it lands in their hair or on their clothing. It would have to be extremely cold for that to happen. Also, the "snow" clumps in bubble like mounds. Real snow doesn't do that. See more »

Coco's early years
6 November 2014 | by juneebuggySee all my reviews

This was okay, Good I guess for a made for TV movie. I was expecting more of a biography about Coco's entire life though instead this just touches on her childhood and then profiles her throughout her twenties; working in a Paris dress shop and then moving in with a wealthy man. Not satisfied with being a kept woman, Coco designs hats and dreams of moving to Paris to open her own boutique.

There's a bit of a love triangle, that's never resolved with her lover 'Étienne's' best friend. Shirley MacClaine plays Coco in her later years and is excellent (although I wondered where her French accent disappeared to?) Really her role is only a cameo, appearing at the beginning and end. Speaking of which the ending is abrupt, leaving tons of unanswered questions. 03.30.14
