316: Lez-ssentials Portrait of A Lady on Fire

Leigh (@lshfoster) and Ellie (@elliebrigida) dive into Portrait of a Lady on Fire for this Lez-ssentials episode, a recurring segment on the essential movies and TV shows in the lesbian canon. We chat about this movie about queers in isolation before social distancing was all the rage. We discuss the choices that Marianne and Heloise have to make because of their circumstances, what it means to truly see someone else and Adele Haenel's eyes. Ellie wants more of the intimate scenes to be showcased in the film and Leigh discusses why she thinks the ending is perfection. From Drunkappella at the bonfire to Vivaldi's Four Seasons, we also have a field day with the soundtrack for this film. Lez-ssentials comes complete with a Portrait of A Lady on Fire drinking game because every lesbian movie or tv show should be accompanied by heavy drinking. This episode also comes with an original Lez-ssentials song based off Portrait of A Lady On Fire entitled "Desire." Follow along on Twitter: Lez Hang Out (@lezhangoutpod) and answer our Q & Gay at the end of every episode. Leigh Holmes Foster (@lshfoster) and Ellie Brigida (@elliebrigida). You can also join us on Facebook.com/lezhangoutpod and Instagram (@lezhangoutpod). Join us on Patreon at bit.y/lezpatreon for a free download of the song.
