"A shattering masterpiece about sexual awakening, heartbreak, and self-discovery." — The Atlantic
"What you get in [Léa Seydoux and Adele Exarchopoulos'] performances is intelligence, emotion, and physicality, and when they come together as combustively as they do here, what you get is something extremely rare—a film that catches the messy, hot complexity of life and love." —Screen International
Blue is the Warmest Color centers on a 15-year old girl named Adele (Exarchopoulos) who is climbing to adulthood and dreams of experiencing her first love. A handsome male classmate falls for her hard, but an unsettling erotic reverie upsets the romance before it begins. Adele 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 (Seydoux), who will soon enter Adele's life for real, making way for an intense and complicated love story that spans a decade and is touchingly universal in its depiction. —Sundance Selects
