Portrait of a Lady on Fire, and the cinema of Céline Sciamma

In the latest episode of Captured on Celluloid, Adam and Andrew are joined by Jordan Snyder to have a long-promised, extended discussion about Portrait of a Lady on Fire.

Diving deep into a film that has been one of the most celebrated and acclaimed of the past six months or so, the conversation touches on screen portrayals of romance, the filmography and style of director Céline Sciamma, the magnetic lead performances of Noémie Merlant and Adéle Haenel, and much more.
