1870s, Northern France: Rosalie has a secret – her face and body are covered in hair. She’s concealed her hirsutism all her life, shaving to ensure she’s accepted in polite society. But her perspective changes when Abel, an indebted bar owner unaware of her secret, marries her for her dowry.

Will the conservative Abel be able to love the real her? If not, why not? And what might happen if she were to reject embarrassment entirely and go public?

Interrogating feminine beauty standards, Rosalie features a winning central performance from Nadia Tereszkiewicz as a sensuous, indomitable woman embarking on an intimate rebellion.

An optimistic and open-hearted story about the power of self-acceptance and the truism that we are more alike than we are different, Rosalie is beautifully shot in gorgeous rural France and features an airy, emotive soundtrack by composer Hania Rani.
