The gang are heading to the coast of France, to an island with no men and only the intense staring and beautiful cinematography of one of the best films ever: Portrait Of A Lady On Fire (2019), Holly’s favourite film of all time, and a true masterpiece. QGFC are here to share the many many reasons they love this film, touching on light, consent, armpit drugs and the importance of looking after your straight mates when they get into scrapes.
When a film can be two hours long, French and contain loads of staring, and still be something Alice loves, how can it not be a classique? Whether its musing on the impermanence of joy or lusting after Adèle Haenel, Holly, Alice and Georgia are ending season 3 on a massive high.
Perhaps it’s the overwhelming beauty of the visuals and story, or perhaps it’s because both Georgia and Holly have the flu, but the crew are in a poetic and reflective mood this episode, not that this doesn’t prevent diversions into grave robbing and eating your pets.
