Emmanuelle Devos (Kings & Queen) stars in this gorgeously rendered biopic of the acclaimed French novelist Violette Leduc, whose intense and fraught relationship with Simone de Beauvoir (Sandrine Kimberlain) fueled her fearless, nakedly confessional writing. In a brilliantly conceived, finely honed and fiercely etched portrait of Leduc, director Martin Provost leads us through chapters depicting her tumultuous life. Not a biopic in the traditional sense, but a stirring and profound, deep and sympathetic look at an artist whose sexuality provided the core of her writing, and who was fearless in confronting the pain and reality of being a woman.
Official Selection: Toronto Film Festival
