A vivid portrait of the stolen romantic relationship between two young women played by Noémie Merlant and Adèle Haenel, who have a persuasive on-screen connection which gives this affair a life of its own…

Set in Brittany in 1760 Marianne, a painter, is commissioned to do the wedding portrait of Héloïse, a young lady who has just left the convent. Héloïse is a reluctant bride to be and Marianne must paint her without her knowing. She observes her by day and secretly paints her at night. Intimacy and attraction grow between the two women as they share Héloïse’s first and last moments of freedom, all whilst Marianne paints the portrait that will end it all.

One of the hits at this year’s Cannes Film Festival, Portrait of a Lady on Fire was the winner of the both the Queer Palm and Best Screenplay.

French with English subtitles.

This is a Silver Screen club screening – members get tickets for these special shows for just £6.25 (£5.25 for Friends of Tyneside Cinema), including refreshments and an introduction to the film.
