EVENTS TEMPORARILY POSTPONED

In response to the developing coronavirus situation in the UK, Exeter Phoenix is currently closed to the public. This is a temporary measure and we are taking this on a month-by-month basis. No events will be taking place during March, and the vast majority of events will be rescheduled for later in the year. We are following government advice and acting in the best interests of our visitors and staff.

Unprecedented closures like this with no confirmed government support will be hugely damaging for charities like Exeter Phoenix and many other sectors. If you are in a position to consider making a donation HERE, we would be extremely grateful.

A vivid portrait of the stolen romantic relationship between two young women played by Noémie Merlant and Adèle Haenel, who have a persuasive on-screen connection which gives this affair a life of its own. 

Set in Brittany in 1760 Marianne, a painter, is commissioned to do the wedding portrait of Héloïse, a young lady 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 and secretly paints her at night. Intimacy and attraction grow between the two women as they share Héloïse’s first and last moments of freedom, all whilst Marianne paints the portrait that will end it all. 

One of the hits at this year’s Cannes Film Festival, Portrait of a Lady on Fire was the winner of both the Queer Palm and Best Screenplay.
