Violette by Martin Provost (2013, 139 min.). Violette Leduc (Emmanuelle Devos) encounters Simone de Beauvoir (Sandrine Kiberlain) in post-WWII Paris. They begin an intense relationship, which would last their whole lives—and one 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. “A beautifully crafted and performed period film” (The Hollywood Reporter).
