Blue is the Warmest Color – Movie Review


One of the most controversial films of the year arrives in theaters! Well, some theaters, being that it’s NC-17. Hit the jump to watch my full review…

Official Synopsis: Adele’s life is changed when she meets Emma, 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, Adele grows, seeks herself, loses herself, finds herself.

Review Summary: Blue is the Warmest Color is one of the very few romances I would call ‘epic’. It spans many years over a very long runtime, and the emotional ground it covers is impressively vast. Many people are understandably discussing the film’s sex scenes, and not much else. However, the central romance is told beautifully, and the two leads give dazzling performances.
