Blue is the Warmest ColorDirector: Abdellatif Kechiche
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.

Love hurts in Blue Is the Warmest Color. That's why it sticks with you. A routine love story elevated by one of the year's most magnetic performances. It's perhaps the first great love story of the 21st century that could belong only to this century. An absorbing, relatable story that also achieves an intimacy and raw emotional power. A knockout star performance by 19-year-old AdÃ¨le Exarchopoulos, whose pillowy lips and guileless eyes illuminate every scene. For its intelligence, sensual daring and fecund human empathy, this film won the Palme d'Or at Cannes, and you can certainly see why. Abdellatif Kechiche's electrifying drama makes the intimate epic, turning those particulars into the fullest possible imagining of a teenage girl's life. While the director takes care to show how AdÃ¨le struggles with social pressure, hiding her sexuality from her friends and parents, that aspect never hijacks the narrative. This is a drama of self-discovery, not a social-issues film. One of the most beautiful movies.
Sometimes you good a good movie, sometimes you get a great one, and then sometimes you get an amazing one that blows you away. That "one that blows you away" would be this movie. It is so real and down to earth, that it just makes you realize how much hope, desire, and life everyone has. Honestly, it is a super-awesome movie and I would recommend it highly.
This was a good movie. Very heart-breaking and real.
