Portait of a Lady on Fire

‘A masterpiece. A devastatingly unforgettable story of love and memory.’ INDIEWIRE

In 1770, before female artists were acknowledged, painter Marianna is commissioned to make an engagement portrait of Héloïse. The reluctant bride refuses point blank to pose so Marianna must watch her in secret and paint at night from her memories. Looking, and being looked at, Marianna and Héloïse slowly begin to form a sensual bond. Portrait of a Lady on Fire depicts with brilliant insight how the world can look different through a woman’s eyes.
