A film PREVIEW showing as part of the Borderlines Film Festival
In 1870s France, Rosalie is a young woman unlike any other, she hides a secret. She was born with a face and body covered in hair. She is a genuine bearded lady, but she doesn’t want to become a common freak-show. She’s concealed her peculiarity all her life to stay safe, shaving to fit in. Until Abel, an indebted bar owner unaware of her secret, marries her for her dowry. Rosalie’s only wish is to be truly seen as the woman she is despite a difference she no longer wishes to hide. But will Abel be able to love her once he finds out the truth?

Borderlines Film Festival 2024 is bigger than ever
Britain’s biggest rural film festival, one of the six largest film festivals in the UK, is set to take place from 1 – 17 March with a record number of screenings and events, just short of 300 in total. Borderlines covers a large area of country with 23 venues across Herefordshire, Shropshire, Malvern and the Marches, from mixed-arts centres and art deco picture palaces to remote village halls.
Supported by the BFI, awarding funds from the National Lottery, the Elmley Foundation and Hereford City Council, Borderlines offers audiences the opportunity to watch some of the very best new releases, including Oscar and BAFTA nominated titles like All of Us Strangers and The Zone of Interest, American Fiction and Anatomy of a Fall (winner of the 2023 Palme d’Or at Cannes).
