Firelight is a period drama movie from 1997 set in the 19th century. The story takes place in France and England and revolves around Elizabeth, played by Sophie Marceau, a beautiful and intelligent woman who has fallen on hard times. To provide for her family, she takes on a job as a governess for a wealthy family living on an isolated island off the coast of England.

The family consists of Charles Godwin, played by Stephen Dillane, a mysterious and brooding man who has become estranged from his wife, and his daughter Louisa, played by Dominique Belcourt. Elizabeth quickly establishes a bond with Louisa, who is lonely and neglected by her parents.

Charles, however, is initially cold and distant towards Elizabeth. As the days go by, Elizabeth discovers that Charles has a tragic past, and has been living in isolation as penance for his past sins. Despite their initial animosity, Elizabeth and Charles slowly develop an intense and passionate relationship.

Their relationship, however, is complicated by the fact that Charles is already married and has a wife who is living in Paris. Elizabeth is torn between her duty as a governess and her growing feelings for Charles.

As the story progresses, Elizabeth becomes entangled in a web of secrets and lies. She discovers that Charles has a dark secret which he has been keeping from everyone, and this secret threatens to destroy the fragile trust that has developed between them.

Meanwhile, Louisa's health begins to deteriorate, and Elizabeth finds herself torn between her obligation to care for her and her growing desire for Charles. The tension between Elizabeth and Charles builds to a dramatic and emotional climax.
