Summary

Director Martin Provost takes the helm for this biographical drama centering on the enduring relationship between French feminist author Violette Leduc (Emmanuelle Devos) and famed intellectual Simone de Beauvoir (Sandrine Kiberlain). Following a chance meeting in post-WWII war Saint-Germain-des-Prés, the two authors establish a bond that will both enrich their careers, and last the rest of their lives. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
