I just posted my Blue is the Warmest Color on the first day of the festival. I missed the Palme d’Or winner earlier this year at Cannes and don’t intend on making the same mistake twice as director Abdellatif Kechiche‘s film is all anyone can talk about lately.
A trailer previously arrived without subtitles, but now I have for you not only the full trailer with English subtitles, but a clip from the film with subtitles as well.
Before you watch, here’s the synopsis:
At 15, AdÃ¨le (AdÃ¨le Exarchopoulos) doesn’t question it: girls go out with boys. Her life is changed forever when she meets Emma (LÃ©a Seydoux), a young woman with blue hair, who will allow her to discover desire, to assert herself as a woman and as an adult. In front of others, AdÃ¨le grows, seeks herself, loses herself, and finds herself.
Blue is the Warmest Color is rated NC-17 and Sundance Selects will release it in theaters, uncut on October 25.
Watch the trailer and clip below, but be warned, they are not safe for work.
Thanks to Mia for the heads up!
