The troubled writer Violette Leduc encountered Simone de Beauvoir in post-WWII Paris. A long-lasting, intense relationship began between them—based on the quest for freedom through writing for Violette, and for Simone, on the conviction that she held the fate of an extraordinary writer in her hands.

MUBI's take

This beguiling biopic on the shadowed and tortured figure of French literature Violette Leduc centers on her intense bond with Simone de Beauvoir in post-war Paris, splendidly reconstructed through ravishing costumes and decors. An alluring exploration of an ambiguous relationship’s power dynamics.
