Hulu has announced that Portrait of a Lady on Fire is coming to the streaming service on Friday, March 27. From Director Céline Sciamma (Girlhood, Tomboy), NEON‘s award-winning film debuted at Cannes and was the winner of Best Screenplay and the Queer Palm at festival last summer.

Portrait of a Lady on Fire was also nominated for a Golden Globe for Best Foreign Language Film, an Independent Spirit Award for Best Foreign Language Film, nominated by the Hollywood Critics Association for Best Foreign Language Film and was awarded Best Cinematography by the New York Film Critics.

GALECA: The Society of LGBTQ Entertainment Critics awarded Portrait of a Lady on Fire LGBTQ Film of the Year and it was nominated for a GLAAD Media Award for Outstanding Film. The movie has been hailed by critics as one of the best films of the year, earning 98% on Rotten Tomatoes.

Set in France, 1760, Marianne is commissioned to paint the wedding portrait of Héloïse, a young woman who has just left the convent. Because she is a reluctant bride-to-be, Marianne arrives under the guise of companionship, observing Héloïse by day and secretly painting her by firelight at night.

As the two women orbit one another, intimacy and attraction grow as they share Héloïse’s first moments of freedom. Héloïse’s portrait soon becomes a collaborative act of and testament to their love.

NEON and Hulu acquired North American rights to the film at the Cannes Film Festival as part of their exclusive film and content output licensing agreement.

When they acquired the film, the companies said: “From the moment we saw this beautiful and captivating love story, we knew we had to release this film. From Celine’s writing and directing, to the absolutely absorbing performances, we couldn’t be more excited for audiences to experience this sensationally moving piece of cinema on the big screen.”

Portrait of a Lady on Fire also stars Luana Bajrami and Valeria Golino. The movie is produced by Bénédicte Couvreur and is a Lilies Film production.
