France, 1760. Marianne is commissioned to paint the wedding portrait of Héloïse, a young woman who has just left the convent. Because she is a reluctant bride-to-be, Marianne arrives under the guise of companionship, observing Héloïse by day and secretly painting her by firelight at night. As the two women orbit one another, intimacy and attraction grow as they share Héloïse’s first moments of freedom. Héloïse's portrait soon becomes a collaborative act of and testament to their love.

"Sciamma's work with the actors here reflects an inspired effort-going far beyond costume and décor-to evoke the inner life of the historical period."
Richard Brody - NEW YORKER

"This is a quantum creative leap for Sciamma, herself a keen observer of behavior. (Her previous films, like "Tomboy" and "Girlhood," were rich with character detail.) Time traveling to an old world seems to unlock the full scope of her passion and insight."
A.A. Dowd - A.V. CLUB

"Arthouse audiences will be intrigued to discover how Sciamma has channelled the fluid energy of her contemporary work into the more constrained environment of a costume drama. It won’t hurt that this is a strikingly handsome production which will be admired on a technical level."
Wendy Ide - SCREEN DAILY

"Love stories are as old as stories themselves, but PORTRAIT OF A LADY ON FIRE feels very much like it's inventing something."
Barbara VenDenBurgh - ARIZONA REPUBLIC
