France, 1870s. Rosalie, the radiant Nadia Tereszkiewicz (The Crime Is Mine), is a young woman unlike any other. She hides a secret. Born with a face and body covered in hair, a condition known as hirsutism, she has concealed her reality all her life, shaving to fit in.
When Abel, portrayed by Benoît Magimel (The Piano Teacher) an indebted bar owner unaware of her secret, marries her for her dowry, the defiant young woman decides to learn how to embrace her unconventional appearance.
The question looms: can Abel love Rosalie and see her for the woman she is, once he discovers the truth?
Inspired by the experiences of actual historical figures, this passionate and empowering drama is a beautifully-crafted parable about intolerance and attitudes towards body diversity.
Directed by Stéphanie Di Giusto as her follow-up film to her acclaimed debut The Dancer, Rosalie is a tender and empathetic story about the triumph of hope and love in a world of prejudice.
