Detailing the relationship between blue-collar Adèle (Adèle Exarchopoulos), 15, and Emma (Léa Seydoux), an older, sophisticated art student, Blue Is the Warmest Colour sweeps you up on waves of humor, heartbreak and romance. Director and co-writer Abdellatif Kechiche (The Secret of the Grain) follows Adèle and Emma through a decade of roller-coaster emotions that are shaped and broken by sex, love, betrayal and an unforgiving class system. The politics of the film, loosely adapted from Julie Maroh’s 2010 graphic novel, can be read on the expressive faces of these two unlikely lovers. Exarchopoulos and Seydoux, who deservedly shared the acting prize at Cannes, give performances of unparalleled intimacy.

Winner of the Palme d’Or at the 2013 Cannes Film Festival.
