Adele is a 15-year-old French girl with very definite ideas about a future career in teaching. However, she is thrust into a whirlwind of confusion when she meets a quirky girl with blue hair named Emma, but doesn't quite feel about her the way she's used to. Emma shows her a world of romance and desire that is all so new and nerve-racking for Adele, who has never had a love affair in her life, as well as one of jealousy and heartbreak. When their blossoming love starts to wane, Adele attempts to find comfort in the arms of men - but finds only further emptiness. Young love is a confusing set of emotions, but just how baffling does it become when it changes your whole persona?
'Blue Is The Warmest Colour' is an extraordinary love story based on the 2010 French graphic novel 'Blue Angel' by Julie Maroh. It has been directed by Abdellatif Kechiche ('Black Venus', 'Couscous') and co-written by his writing partner Ghalia Lacroix and, on winning the Palme d'Or prize at the 2013 Cannes Film Festival, it became the first movie to have the prize dedicated to two of the actors also. With positive reviews all round, 'Blue Is The Warmest Colour' is now out in cinemas.
