About this event

France, 1760. Marianne is commissioned to paint the wedding portrait of Héloïse, a young woman who has just left the convent. Because she is a reluctant bride-to-be, Marianne arrives under the guise of companionship, observing Héloïse by day and secretly painting her by firelight at night. As the two women orbit one another, intimacy and attraction grow as they share Héloïse’s first moments of freedom. Héloïse's portrait soon becomes a collaborative act of and testament to their love.  

Winner of a coveted Cannes prize and one of the best-reviewed films of the year, Portrait Of A Lady On Fire solidifies Céline Sciamma as one of the most exciting filmmakers working in the world today. 

Golden Globe and BAFTA nominated for Best Foreign Feature Film
