Portrait Of A Lady On Fire (15)

Romance and art entwine in PORTRAIT OF A LADY ON FIRE, a sumptuous new masterpiece from Céline Sciamma (TOMBOY, GIRLHOOD) and we are delighted to be offering a special Valentine's Day Preview screening.

Set in late 18th century France, painter Marianne (Noémie Merlant) is commissioned by an affluent countess to paint the wedding portrait of her sheltered but headstrong daughter Héloïse (Adèle Haenel), 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, observing Héloïse by day and painting her by night. However, as the two women grow closer, their intimacy and attraction begins to blossom, paving the way for a simmering, star-crossed romance.

A heartbreaking period piece told with a distinctly modern feminist energy, PORTRAIT OF A LADY ON FIRE is the first female-directed film to win the Queer Palm at the Cannes Film Festival, where it also won the Best Screenplay award.

"Real love may be fleeting, but as Portrait of a Lady on Fire explains, art and memory are immortal." Clarisse Loughrey, The Independent
