Winner of both the Queer Palm and Best Screenplay at the 2019 Cannes International Film Festival, the film features exceptional performances from stars Adèle Haenel and Noémie Merlant.

Brittany, France 1770. Portrait painter Marianne (Merlant) is commissioned to paint the wedding portrait of Héloïse (Haenel), a reluctant bride to be who has just left the convent. The painting must be done in secret, and so Marianne observes her by day and paints by night. Intimacy and attraction grow between the two women, but their freedom is short-lived.
