Winner of a Queer Palm and Best Screenplay at Cannes Film Festival in 2019, Portrait of a Lady on Fire explores the achingly gradual romance between two women in Brittany in 1760. Marianne is commissioned to paint Héloïse's wedding portrait, but - with Héloïse a reluctant bride - must do so without her knowledge. Masquerading as a walking companion, Marianne spends her days observing and long nights painting. But her looks do not go unnoticed and, as desire stirs, a new taste of freedom threatens to spoil the arrangement.
