Brittany, France 1760. Portrait painter Marianne (Noemie Merlant) is commissioned to paint the wedding portrait of Heloise (Adele Haenel), a reluctant bride to be who has just left the convent. 

The painting must be done in secret, and so Marianne observes her by day and paints by night. Intimacy and attraction grow between the two women but their freedom is short-lived. 

Portrait of a Lady on Fire is the winner of the both the Queer Palm and Best Screenplay at Cannes 2019.
