"At 15, Adèle knows two things for sure: she's a girl, and a girl goes out with boys. But the day she sees Emma's blue hair at her father's house, she knows her life is about to change."
'Blue Is The Warmest Color' (2013) (Trailer below)
"Make no mistake, 'Blue Is the Warmest Color' constitutes a breakthrough, in addition to being the best film of 2013."
"Banned in Idaho, but not in Boston! Lives up to the hype. Rapturous."
"Paints the whole picture (of young love and heartbreak) with devastating, blissful accuracy."
"What a film. Thanks to masterful performances from Léa Seydoux and Adèle Exarchopoulosgo, 'Blue Is The Warmest Colour' is a landmark in modern cinema; being one of the best, if not THE BEST film of the past decade."
Those are a few of the raves 'Blue Is The Warmest Color' is receiving from critics and moviegoers across the globe. Not only was it a sensation at the Cannes Film Festival...winning the coveted Palme d'Or (the highest prize awarded - presented to the director of the best feature film of the official competition)...it also made history as the first film ever awarded the Palme d’Or to both its director and its actresses.
"In a star-making role, Adèle Exarchopoulos is Adèle, a passionate young woman who has a yearning she doesn’t quite understand until a chance encounter with the blue-haired Emma ignites a flame and brings her to life. Léa Seydoux (Midnight in Paris) gives a fearless performance as Emma, the older woman who excites Adèle’s desire and becomes the love of her life. Abdellatif Kechiche’s (The Secret of the Grain) intimate epic of tenderness and passion charts their relationship over the course of several years, from the ecstasy of a first kiss to the agony of heartbreak. Pulsing with gestures, embraces, furtive exchanges, and arias of joy and devastation, Blue is the Warmest Color is a profoundly moving hymn to both love and life."
