Blue is the Warmest Color: a Film by Abdellatif Kechiche
The colorful, electrifying romance that took the Cannes Film Festival by storm courageously dives into a young woman’s experiences of first love and sexual awakening. Blue is the Warmest Colour stars the remarkable newcomer Adele Exarchopoulos as a high schooler who, much to her own surprise, plunges into a thrilling relationship with a female twenty something art student, played by Lea Seydoux. Directed by Abdellatif Kechiche, this finely detailed intimate epic sensitively renders the erotic abandon of youth. It has captivated international audiences and been widely embraced as a defining love story for the new century. At its world premiere at the 66th Cannes Film Festival the film received a standing ovation and ranked the highest in critics’ polls.
