  • A 15-year-old finds her nave 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. Adle (Adle Exarchopoulos) is in the midst of a sexual awakening when a handsome male classmate strives to catch her attention. Meanwhile, Adle's daydreams keep drifting back to Emma (La Seydoux), a worldly art student she ran into on the street. Later, when Adle 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.

  • Critic Reviews
    "Adele Exarchopoulos gives the kind of explosive performance awards are made for....The film is unique and unforgettable..."
    Rolling Stone

    "Adle acquires a depth and grandeur that make her equal to some of the great heroines of literature."
    New York Times

    "BLUE's raw portrayal of infatuation and heartbreak is both devastating and sublime. It's unforgettable." -- Grade: A-
    Entertainment Weekly

    "The performances are nothing less than astonishing."
    Wall Street Journal

    "The film belongs to Exarchopoulos, its remarkably expressive starlet, whose countenance -- frequently framed in close-up, the better to read each telling, minute shift in feeling -- becomes a grand canvas for director Abdellatif Kechiche..."
    A.V. Club

    4 stars out of 4 -- ""[A] sprawling, boldly immersive coming-of-age drama..."
    Washington Post

    5 stars out of 5 -- "[T]he physical boldness is matched emotionally and psychologically. Whether its passion or pain, youll feel it too."
    Hollywood Reporter

    "[A] relationship drama of uncommon scope and ambition, set apart by its idiosyncratic form and its frank treatment of gay experience in its chronicle of two young women in and out of love over six years."
