Portrait of a Lady on Fire (out Dec 26) is a beautiful French drama about a female artist engaged to paint the portrait of a woman who is soon to be wed. This is a patient drama that builds to a powerful, moving climax. As the artist studies her subject matter, so too do we as the audience. It’s a movie that relies more on eye movement and less on dialogue. Grade: A.
