Critically acclaimed drama ‘Blue is the Warmest Colour‘ is now available to stream on Netflix.
Blue Is the Warmest Colour is a 2013 French romantic drama film written, produced, and directed by Abdellatif Kechiche and starring Léa Seydoux and Adèle Exarchopoulos. The film revolves around Adèle (Exarchopoulos), a French teenager who discovers desire and freedom when a blue-haired lesbian painter (Seydoux) enters her life.
At the 2013 Cannes Film Festival, the film unanimously won the Palme d’Or from the official jury and the FIPRESCI Prize. It is the first film to have the Palme d’Or awarded to both the director and the lead actresses, with Seydoux and Exarchopoulos becoming the only women apart from director Jane Campion to have ever won the award. Blue Is the Warmest Colour is based on the 2010 French graphic novel of the same name by Julie Maroh, which was published in North America in 2013.
The film had its North American première at the 2013 Telluride Film Festival. It has received critical acclaim and was nominated for the Golden Globe Award for Best Foreign Language Film and the BAFTA Award for Best Film not in the English Language. Many critics declared it to be the best film of 2013!
