After taking on the tumultuous period known as adolescence in Tomboy and Girlhood, Celine Sciamma turns to the 1760s for his next feature, Portrait of a Lady on Fire. Starring Adèle Haenel and Noémie Merlant, the film follows a woman who is tasked with painting a wedding portrait of a bride-to-be, though her subject is not allowed to know of the commission. As the painting process occurs, their bond grows tighter leading up to the wedding.

Ahead of the highly-anticipated premiere on May 20 at Cannes Film Festival, the first trio of clips, as well as new images and a poster, have arrived. See below, along with a synopsis, and check back for our review.

France, 1770. Marianne, a painter, is commissioned to do the wedding portrait of Héloïse, a young woman who has just left the convent. Héloïse is a reluctant bride to be and Marianne must paint her without her knowing. She observes her by day, to paint her secretly.

Update: The first clip has been removed at the request of the filmmakers.
