Marguerite is a Canadian short drama film, directed by Marianne Farley and released in 2017. The film stars Béatrice Picard as Marguerite, an elderly woman who confronts her own long-repressed romantic feelings for another woman after learning that her home care nurse Rachel (Sandrine Bisson) is a lesbian. Farley wrote the script comparing her generation to her grandmother's. 
The film premiered at the Taipei Golden Horse Film Festival in November 2017, and received followup screenings at both LGBT and general film festivals through 2018. It was one of 12 short films selected for screening on Ici TOU.TV in conjunction with the 2018 Rendez-vous du cinéma québécois.
The film won numerous short film awards at film festivals, including Short Shorts Japan, the Long Beach QFilm Festival, the Twist Film Festival in Seattle, the Filmout San Diego Film Festival, Wicked Queer and the Academy Award-qualifying Rhode Island International Film Festival.
