PREVIEW: Portrait of a Lady on Fire

Portrait of a Lady on Fire is a film I have heard much about, despite its lack of attention in mainstream media and throughout the American awards season. Depicting the story of a portrait created in confidence, this French film features arresting cinematography and a look at an intense relationship between two women. This film has been nominated for everything from best actress to costume design to the Palme d’Or, and so there’s definitely something worth seeing here, even if it hasn’t been on many people’s radar.

 

Come out to the State tomorrow at 7 to see this surely fascinating film and support international cinema!
