Violette is a 2013 French-Belgian biographical drama film written and directed by Martin Provost, about the French novelist Violette Leduc. It was screened in the Special Presentation section at the 2013 Toronto International Film Festival.

During the last years of World War II, Violette Leduc lives with Maurice Sachs, who doesn’t love her but who does encourage her to write. She seeks out Simone de Beauvoir and eventually presents her with a draft of her first book. De Beauvoir rewards Violette’s trust by reading and commenting on the book and by introducing her to contemporary intellectual icons Jean-Paul Sartre, Jean Genetand Albert Camus. In 1964, the success of Violette Leduc’s autobiographical bestseller La Bâtarde enables her to earn a living from her writing.
