A wonderful performance from Emmanuelle Devos in this beautifully crafted biopic of the trailblazing feminist writer, Violette Leduc, whose stormy bisexual life intersected with the literary giants of the Parisian post-war world. The film casts a sharp but sympathetic gaze on an uncompromising woman and her relationship with the well known French writer and feminist Simone de Beauvoir.
