In 19th Century Brittany, young painter Marianne is commissioned to paint a portrait of Lady Héloïse for the purpose of eliciting marriage proposals. Knowing that Héloïse has previously refused to sit for portraits as she does not want to be married, Marianne poses as a maid in order to gain her subject’s trust, only to find herself inadvertently falling in love with her. A subversively seductive love story, this bold film won best screenplay at Cannes last year.
