Blue Is the Warmest Color: French Lesbian Coming of Age Film Coming to NY

September 20, 2013 | Marina Galperina

Abdellatif Kechiche’s Blue Is the Warmest Color (La vie d’Adele) is a 15-year-old Adèle and her relationship with art school student Emma. Twitch Film is calling it “one of the most shockingly explicit features to cross the pond in quite some time” and “one of the best films of the year.”  It’s also three hours long, in French and based on a graphic novel. The US trailer (above) has French-downed it for you, so here’s a clip (below) with actual dialogue.

Blue Is the Warmest Color is playing at the 51st New York Film Festival, kicking off in a week at the Lincoln center.

Who’s in love with blue-hued Léa Seydoux yet?
