A 15-year-old finds her naïve perceptions of human sexuality challenged upon meeting a blue-haired student who encourages her to assert her individuality in director Abdel Kechiche's deeply perceptive drama. Adèle (Adèle Exarchopoulos) is in the midst of a sexual awakening when a handsome male classmate strives to catch her attention. Meanwhile, Adèle's daydreams keep drifting back to Emma (Léa Seydoux), a worldly art student she ran into on the street. Later, when Adèle and Emma forge an actual connection, the uncertain younger teen discovers a side of herself that she's never known, becoming increasingly comfortable in her own skin despite the reactions of her close-minded classmates. Blue Is the Warmest Color was the recipient of the prestigious Palme d' Or at the 66th Annual Cannes Film Festival.
Emotionally intense. When passion trumps loyalty and judgment is not adequately nuanced, loneliness and sadness are left.
It is a brave, raw, and intimate portrayal of love lost. The performances are amazing!
By far one of the BEST movies I have seen. The acting was phenomenal amongst everything else.
Great script destroyed by too long and exploitative sex scenes. A real shame
