‘A masterpiece. A devastatingly unforgettable story of love and memory.’

INDIEWIRE

In 1770, before female artists were acknowledged, young painter Marianna is commissioned to make an engagement portrait of Héloïse. The reluctant bride-to-be refuses point blank to pose, so Marianna must watch her in secret and paint at night from her memories. Looking, and being looked at, Marianna and Héloïse slowly begin to form a sensual bond.

One of France’s most gifted cinematic storytellers, Céline Sciamma, directs this beautifully calibrated, incandescent romance, which took home both Best Screenplay and the Queer Palm at the 2019 Cannes Film Festival.

Portrait of a Lady on Fire depicts with brilliant insight how the world can look different through a woman’s eyes.
