Set on the French Riviera in the summer of 1915, Renoir tells the story of celebrated Impressionist painter Pierre-Auguste Renoir, in declining health at age 74, and his middle son Jean, who returns home to convalesce after being wounded in World War I. The elder Renoir is filled with a new, wholly unexpected energy when a young girl, Andrée, miraculously enters his world. At the same time, Jean also falls under the spell of the free-spirited Andrée. Their beautiful home and majestic countryside grounds reverberate with familial intrigue, as both Renoirs become smitten with the enchanting and headstrong young muse.
