"A Bearded Lady’s Beauty Meets the Female Gaze – and Stuns Cannes." The Wrap

A story of hope and radical self-acceptance, Rosalie is a beautiful and bold romance from director Stéphanie Di Giusto, starring Nadia Tereszkiewicz and Benoît Magimel.

France, 1870. Rosalie (Tereszkiewicz) is a young woman with a secret. She was born with a face and body covered in hair. She’s kept her secret safe all her life, until Abel, an indebted bar owner, marries her for her dowry. Now, she no longer wishes to hide.

Stéphanie Di Giusto's Rosalie impeccably portrays a defiant spirit amid a conformist society - echoing the rebellious emotions of last year‘s feminist Cannes hit Corsage.
