Portrait of a Lady on Fire (15)

Director Céline Sciamma. French Drama/Romance with English subtitles


In this enigmatic historical romance set at the end of the 18th century, artist Marianne is commissioned to paint a betrothal portrait of a young woman, Lady Héloïse. Knowing that Héloïse resists marriage, Marianne disguises herself as a lady’s companion in order to gain her subject’s trust; only to find herself inadvertently falling in love with her. This is a subversively seductive love story, as the two women grapple with a society that prohibits not only sexual and emotional bonds between them, but also the control of their own artistry, bodies and lives. Both bold and restrained, it’s an absorbing and immersive film, gorgeous to look at.

Starring Noémie Merlant, Adèle Haenel, Luàna Bajrami, Valeria Golino
