The adaptation of the 2010 comic book, Le Bleu est Une Couleur Chaude by Julie Maroh, won the Palme d’Or at Cannes this year.
Adele Exarchopoulos stars as a 15-year-old girl whose life is changed when she falls in love with an older woman, Lea Seydoux. The three-hour film does feature lengthy, graphic sex scenes and is a heartbreaking coming of age story.
Abdellatif Kechiche directs.
