Remarkable portrait of French novelist Violette Leduc offers a striking effort from Emmanuelle Devos as the impoverished wartime black marketeer whose emotionally raw prose, combined with the patronage of Simone de Beauvoir (Sandrine Kiberlain), placed her amongst her nation's foremost literary figures of the last century. Olivier Gourmet, Jacques Bonnaffé, Olivier Py, Catherine Hiegel co-star. 138 min. Widescreen (Enhanced); Soundtrack: French Dolby Digital stereo; Subtitles: English. In French with English subtitles.
