Séraphine is the true story of Séraphine de Senlis, a housekeeper who in 1905 at age 41, self-taught and at the instigation of her guardian angel, began painting brilliantly colorful canvases. Director Martin Provost builds his story around the relationship between Séraphine and the avant-garde art dealer who discovers her, forging a testament to the mysteries of creativity and the resilience of one woman’s spirit.
