A rich period piece, Portrait of a Lady on Fire finds stirring, thought-provoking drama within a powerfully acted romance.

Set against the societal constraints of 1700s Brittany, Marianne, a painter, is commissioned to do the wedding portrait of Héloïse, a young woman 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, to paint her secretly.

“Superbly elegant...an enigmatic drama” (Guardian ★★★★★)

"A gorgeous study of two women in love" (Independent ★★★★★)

"It will set your world alight!" (Metro ★★★★★)

"A sacred love poem to take with you for the rest of your life" (Empire ★★★★★)
