One of the best reviewed films of the year and winner of the coveted Best Screenplay and Queer Palm awards at the Cannes Film Festival, PORTRAIT OF A LADY ON FIRE is an intimate and deeply affecting period drama about freedom, love and desire.

Marianne is a young painter in 18th-Century France, commissioned to do a wedding portrait of Héloïse without her knowing. Marianne disguises herself as her companion to get closer to her subject – observing by day and secretly painting at night. Intimacy and attraction grow between the two women as they share Héloïse’s first and last moments of freedom. The portrait soon becomes a collaborative act of and testament to their love. (French with English subtitles)

Razor-sharp and shatteringly romantic… as perfect a film as any to have premiered this year. – Indiewire

It is so very easy to label a film incendiary, but Portrait of a Lady on Fire deserves the scalding honour. It will ignite every flame you might have. - Globe and Mail

Sciamma’s ravishing celebration of female passion and desire is rooted in mutual sexual awakening but ultimately becomes a story of a much deeper, more spiritual kind of love. – Little White Lies

Golden Globe Nomination:  Best Foreign Language Film

31st annual GLAAD Media Awards: Oustanding Film Limited Release
