After the success of Seraphine, Martin Provost returns with this gorgeously rendered biopic. Tired of adhering to societal norms of the time period, French writer Violette Leduc caused a sensation in post-war France with her provocative, sexually explicit novels. Delivered with delicacy and insight, and set in the heady cultural milieu of Paris, Violette casts a sharp yet sympathetic gaze on the inner workings of Leduc, her fearless writing and the complex love she shared with revered feminist Simone de Beauvoir.
