One of the hits at this year’s Cannes Film Festival where it received a Queer Palm and the Best Screenplay award, Céline Sciamma’s Portrait of a Lady on Fire depicts the impossible romance in 18th century Brittany between Héloïse (Adèle Haenel), a reluctant bride to be, and Marianne (Noémie Merlant), a painter commissioned to do her wedding portrait.
