Blue Is The Warmest Color

This French film, directed by Abdellatif Kechiche, scooped the top prize at last May’s Cannes Film Festival. It’s based on a 2010 graphic novel of the same name by Julie Maroh that chronicles a passionate love affair between two young women in Paris (played in the movie by Lea Seydoux and Adele Exarchopoulos).

At 179 minutes, Blue Is The Warmest Color is a bit of a bum-number. But it’s received a lot of critical praise. At last September’s Toronto International Film Festival Prairie Dog film critic Jorge Ignacio Castillo had an opportunity to have a breakfast interview (via a translator) with Seydoux and Exarchopoulos that you can read here.

Blue Is The Warmest Color is running at Rainbow Cinemas as part of its Art & Alternative series until Jan. 2 with screenings at 1:30 and 7:10 p.m. Here’s the trailer:
