Portrait of a Lady on Fire

Drama, Romance 1h 59m 2019

AroView: Céline Sciamma (GIRLHOOD) directs this devastatingly good, exquisitely executed lesbian period drama. Set in France in the 18th century, where a female artist is commissioned to paint a wedding portrait of a bride-to-be, whose reluctance to marry requires the artist to observe her by day and secretly paint her by night.

“Visually ravishing (…) a piercingly intelligent treatise on art, agency and queer love in the 18th century.” ~ The Wrap.
