Based on the graphic novel by Julie Maroh, Blue Is the Warmest Color centres on a 15-year-old girl named Adèle as she approaches 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 the mysterious, blue-haired girl she encountered in the street slips into her bed and possesses her with an overwhelming pleasure. That blue-haired girl is a confident older art student named Emma, who will soon enter 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. Winner of the Palme d’Or at the 2013 Cannes Film Festival and the focal point of intense critical discussions since its release, Blue Is the Warmest Color is certain to intrigue, challenge and delight.

FILM REVIEW "The film is also a showcase for Exarchopoulos and Seydoux... Exarchopoulos in particular, jejune in the best sense, doubtlessly talented yet seemingly artless, is extraordinary." Josef Braun -VUE Weekly

FILM REVIEW "These two actors were up to the challenge of delivering a decent and believable story of two people who meet, fall in love and eventually grow apart." Katherine Monk -Edmonton Journal
