Portrait of a Lady on Fire

Portrait of a Lady on Fire Fifteen

In this enigmatic historical romance set at the end of the 18th century, artist Marianne is commissioned to paint a betrothal portrait of a young woman, Lady Héloïse. Knowing that Héloïse resists marriage, Marianne disguises herself as a lady’s companion in order to gain her subject’s trust; only to find herself inadvertently falling in love with her. This is a subversively seductive love story, as the two women grapple with a society that prohibits not only sexual and emotional bonds between them, but also the control of their own artistry, bodies and lives. Both bold and restrained, it’s an absorbing and immersive film, gorgeous to look at.

I am a wheelchair user and find it difficult to go to the theatre to enjoy a good film or take in a 'bit of Culture' now and again.Flicks in The Sticks brings a lot of joy to so many people who otherwise would miss out.

Totally loved 'The boy who bit Picasso' It was so heartwarming, funny and made me nearly cry at the end! Totally inspired me and makes me want to make theatre!

I heard the Ensemble Sakhioba and want to say what an extraordinary experience it was. A really remarkable performance - thank you for bringing them to Shropshire and I'm glad you achieved a very full audience for them.


We are regular flicks goers and we would be lost without your service. I can't tell you how much your screenings mean to people like us


Living in 'the sticks' limits access to the larger cinemas, consequently Flicks is a lovely way of seeing fairly recent films, without the hassle of planning a journey beforehand. Long may it last.

A really enjoyable experience. Friendly atomosphere and heart warming film (Salmon Fishing in the Yemen) Would love the chance to do it again. What a good idea for community spirit.

Looking forward to showing films again this season. Like putting on a favourite winter coat!


I am 86 and I am a big fan of flicks. In the villages its lovely, the proper way to do it, have a glass of wine and a chat, its so much more than just a film


Flicks is the lynch pin for most of what goes on in our village


The Film shows give me a reason to leave the house
