The leading British actresses passionately snog and even share a raunchy sex scene as they play lovers in the period drama which hits cinemas next month.
Audiences will even see Poldark star Eleanor go completely topless as a naked Keira unbuttons her dress for their steamy romp.
Keira plays French novelist Sidonie-Gabrielle Colette in the movie, who embarks on a lesbian affair with American heiress Georgie Raoul-Duval (Tomlinson).
In the movie Colette is pushed by her husband Willy to write novels under his name as his ghost writer.
Upon their success, she fights to make her talents known, challenging gender norms in the early 20th century.
The movie also stars Dominic West as Willy and Fiona Shaw as Sido.
Speaking to the Daily Mail about her lesbian sex scenes last month, the actress admitted she consciously tried to tone them down.
She confessed: "I didn’t want the lesbian sex scenes to be seen through the male gaze.
"We were very conscious of keeping it titillating, but not in any way exploitative."
Keira also admitted in a recent interview that she struggled to balance filming with being a mum to daughter Edie, who was just one at the time.
She "The thing about playing a lead, you really are there all the f***ing time. It’s a wonderful, privileged thing but it’s very tiring.
"And if you’re doing that with a very small child who is waking up five times a night, literally keeping the words in your head is very difficult."
