How to Watch 'Portrait of a Lady on Fire' Online

The romantic drama, Portrait of a Lady on Fire, will be available to watch on Hulu, ahead of its scheduled April digital release. On March 27 at midnight, audiences will be able to watch director Céline Sciammae's period piece about forbidden love.

Today, Neon, the distributor of the Academy Award–winning Parasite, announced that it will release the 2019 French drama on two streaming platforms. Portrait of a Lady on Fire will stream exclusively on Hulu starting at midnight on Friday,. It will then be available on video on demand (VOD) beginning in April.

Described by Neon as "cinema's greatest love story," Portrait takes place in France, in 1760. Artist Marianne (Noémie Merlant) has been hired to paint the wedding portrait of Héloïse (Adèle Haenel). Marianne and Héloïse are thought to have a platonic friendship, but their relationship is stirring up strong desires.

It's not long before Héloïse has doubts about getting married. Will Héloïse continue her love affair and choose Marianne? Or is she destined to remain with her future husband?

This writer thinks watching Portrait of a Lady on Fire will bring out the tissues. Excuse me while the eyes are leaking.
