Synopsis

Winner of both the Queer Palm and Best Screenplay awards at 2019's Cannes Film Festival PORTRAIT OF A LADY ON FIRE is a simmering, intense tale of star-crossed romance from director Céline Sciamma.


Set in late 18th century France, painter Marianne is commissioned by an affluent countess to paint the wedding portrait of her sheltered but headstrong daughter Héloïse, in the hope it will find her a wealthy husband. While posing as her hired companion, Marianne is instructed to complete the portrait in secret, but as the two women grow closer...


This sumptious, seductive and liberating romance is brought to life with passion, nuance, and grace through the performances of Noémie Merlant and Adèle Haene and the exquisite photography of Claire Mathon. Together they show what it means to truly see — and to truly be seen.
