Romance and art entwine in a sumptuous new masterpiece from Céline Sciamma (Tomboy, Girlhood). Set in late 18th century France, painter Marianne (Noémie Merlant) is commissioned by an affluent countess to paint the wedding portrait of her sheltered but headstrong daughter Héloïse (Adèle Haenel), in the hope it will find her a wealthy husband. While posing as her hired companion, Marianne is instructed to complete the portrait in secret, observing Héloïse by day and painting her by night. However, as the two women grow closer, their intimacy and attraction begins to blossom, paving the way for a simmering, star-crossed romance. 

A heartbreaking period piece with a distinctly modern feminist energy unfolds, in one of the standout films from last year's Inverness Film Festival.
