Portrait of a Lady on Fire

February 14, 7:15 PM

$7.50 – $9.50

Golden Globe Nominee, Best Foreign Film.

France, 1770. 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.  Seeing—really seeing—is perhaps the first step in falling in love….

Portrait of a Lady on Fire is primarily a romance. But it’s also a film about the deeply personal process of creativity—the pain and joy of making one’s emotions and memories into a work of art. For me, it is the most enthralling cinema experience of the year” —David Sims, The Atlantic.

And Sims is not alone: Portrait of a Lady on Fire is a movie that’s a treasure for us all, as witness its 95 Metascore rating of all critics. You’ll echo their hosannas and joy in looking at this wonderful film.

In French with English subtitles, R, 121 min.

This is a special advance screening. The regular run for this film starts on March 6.
