Set in 18th-century Brittany, Portrait of a Lady on Fire follows Marianne, an artist commissioned by an Italian noblewoman to paint a portrait of her reclusive daughter Heloise, who is soon to be married.

The peculiar conditions of this assignment, however, require that Marianne never announce to Heloise the objective of her visit. Instead, Marianne is to escort Heloise on walks, posing as a hired companion while closely observing her subject so as to render her likeness on canvas in secret. 

Dissatisfied with her initial portrait, Marianne petitions her patroness for a second chance. Marianne then confesses the ruse to Heloise, procuring her cooperation and allowing the women to forge a much closer bond - one that will lead to passionate intimacy. Directed by Celine Sciamma (Tomboy, Girlhood), Portrait of a Lady on Fire is a slow burn in which every word, glance, and touch holds the promise of undiscovered territory.
