Coco Before Chanel

This film won several awards.

The synopsis (from GSC site)

Several years after leaving the orphanage to which her father
never returned for her, Gabrielle Chanel finds herself working
in a provincial bar both. She's both a seamstress for the performers and a singer,
earning the nickname Coco from the song she sings nightly with her sister.
A liaison with Baron Balsan gives her an entree into
French society and a chance to develop her gift for designing
increasingly popular hats.
When she falls in love with English businessman Arthur Capel
further opportunities open up, though
life becomes ever more complicated.
