Palme D’or winner Blue is the Warmest Colour opens this Friday
20 November 2013
Blue is the Warmest Colour was the sensation of this years Cannes Festival, even before it was awarded the festivals highest prize, the Palme D’or. The film tells the story of Adele, an average 15 year old, whose life is turned upside down when she meets Emma, a blue haired art student. Their friendship quickly turns into a romance and Adele becomes Emma’s friend, lover, flatmate and artistic muse.
The performance of the two lead actresses was jointly rewarded alongside the director at Cannes and the critical reaction to Adèle Exarchopoulos and Léa Seydoux has been incredible with Peter Bradshaw saying ‘The film is acted with honesty and power’ and Robbie Collins describing their performances as ‘the best in the festival.’
The film’s impressive running time of around three hours ‘flies by if you're willing to invest just a little in Adèle's adventure’. The story of their first love and self discovery is directed with ‘honesty and generosity’ by Kechiche who has previously directed Games of Love and Chance and Couscous.
We’re incredibly excited to bring one of the best and most talked about foreign language films of the year to Liverpool. Tickets are on sale now and available online, by phone on 0871 902 5737 and at the Box Office.
