France, 1870s. Rosalie (Nadia Tereszkiewicz) is a young woman unlike any other. She hides a secret: she was born with a face and body covered in hair. She’s concealed her peculiarity all her life to stay safe, shaving to fit in. Until Abel (Benoît Magimel), an indebted bar owner unaware of her secret, marries Rosalie for her dowry. Will Abel be able to love Rosalie and see her as the woman she is, once he finds out the truth?

An exquisitely crafted story of hope and radical self-acceptance, Rosalie is a beautiful and bold romance from director Stéphanie Di Giusto, marking her fearlessly inspiring sophomore feature following her Cannes-screened 2016 debut The Dancer.
