“Visually ravishing (...) a piercingly intelligent treatise on art, agency and queer love in the 18th century.”~TheWrap

Aroview: Céline Sciamma (GIRLHOOD) directs this devastatingly good, exquisitely executed lesbian period drama. Set in France in the 18th century, where a female artist is commissioned to paint a wedding portrait of a bride-to-be, whose reluctance to marry requires the artist to observe her by day and secretly paint her by night.
