PRIDE MONTH

A vivid 18th century portrait of the stolen romantic relationship between two young women, played by Noémie Merlant and Adèle Haenel, who have a persuasive onscreen connection which gives this affair a life of its own.

In Detail

Brittany 1760. Painter Marianne (Merlant) is commissioned to do the wedding portrait of Héloïse (Haenel).

Héloïse is a reluctant bride-to-be and Marianne must paint her without her knowing. She observes her by day and secretly paints her at night. Intimacy and attraction grow between the two as they share Héloïse’s first and last moments of freedom, all whilst Marianne paints the portrait that will end it all.

You can capture, mount, and hang every moment of this film on a wall as high art.
