    Synopsis


    Blue Is the Warmest Color
    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. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

      This movie courageously portrays a young woman's emotional and physical experiences of first love. The new comer star sensitively renders her erotic abandon of youth, followed by the bleak loneliness of the loss of her first love. A brutally honest film, not for the faint of heart, not because of the erotic content, but instead the potent emotional content. A masterpiece. French Language film with English subtitles. Criterion Collection blu-ray edition widescreen 1.77:1 aspect ratio has a clear picture with good sound quality.

      Blue is the Warmest Color was my favorite film of 2013. It is a coming of age film that is real, raw and breathtaking. Adele Exarchopoulos is brilliant as the lead character.
