Blue is the Warmest Color

Dir. Abdellatif Kechiche France 179 min NC-17

2013 IFC Films

French with English subtitles

Winner of the Palme d’Or at the 2013 Cannes Film Festival, this sensuous drama depicts a lesbian couple from first sight through courtship, new love, fragile domestic life, and – perhaps – end. BLUE IS THE WARMEST COLOR centers on a 15-year-old girl named Adèle (Adèle Exarchopoulos) who is approaching adulthood and dreams of experiencing her first love. A handsome male classmate falls hard for her, but an unsettling erotic reverie upsets the romance before it begins. Adèle imagines that a mysterious, blue-haired girl she encountered on the street slips into her bed and possesses her with overwhelming pleasure. That blue-haired girl is a confident older art student named Emma (Léa Seydoux), who will soon enters Adèle’s life for real, making way for an intense and complicated love story that spans a decade and is touchingly universal in its depiction.
