Film: Portrait of a Lady on Fire


Our screening for July is Celine Sciamma's Portrait of a Lady on Fire, winner of Best Screen Play and Queer Palm and nominee for the Palm d'Or at Cannes Film Festival 2019. This exquisitely shot masterpiece has won a whopping 59 awards in total, portraying an unexpected 18th Century romance between a painter and her model.

Marianne (Noémie Merlant) is commissioned to do the wedding portrait of Héloise (Adele Haenal), a young woman who has just left the convent. Héloise is a reluctant bride to be and Marianne must paint her without her knowing. She observes her by day, to paint her secretly at night.

All our film screenings will be following the very latest government guidance on Covid-19 safety, and as new announcements are made we will ensure you are kept up to date with the latest guidance for attending our screenings. 
Please respect others and maintain social distancing wherever possible.
