Portrait of a Lady on Fire

Portrait of a Lady on Fire ★★★★

This film is very hard to describe without spoilers. This entire plot is so very simple but its the twist half way through that makes it interesting and tense. The acting and character development is beautiful, natural, and relevant to the time period. I think I would classify this as a woman's movie because of the plot and what happens in the story. This film's is pretty much all woman and the few main characters are able to make so much out of every detail and every emotion. Speaking of emotion, the third act of movie is both heartbreaking and empowering. The conflict between characters feels real and gives the audience a shred of hope and then slowly breaks it down into pieces. Overall, this film is able to fulfill it expectations and gives you some things to think about when its over.
