Abdellatif Kechiche’s newest film, based on Julie Maroh’s graphic novel, was the sensation of this year’s Cannes Film Festival even before it was awarded the Palme d’Or. Adèle Exarchopoulos is Adèle, a young woman whose longings and ecstasies and losses are charted across a span of several years. Léa Seydoux (Midnight in Paris) is the older woman who excites her desire and becomes the love of her life. Kechiche’s movie is, like the films of John Cassavetes, an epic of emotional transformation. Blue pulses with gestures, embraces, furtive exchanges, and arias of joy and devastation, some verbal and some physical.

GLAAD Media Awards Celebrate Blue Is The Warmest Color And Dallas Buyers Club
It's rare for a movie to make it to theaters with an honest-to-God NC-17 rating, and even rarer for that movie to be a legitimate awards season contender, a critically acclaimed drama, and a major success from one of the more prestigious film festivals in the world. So if it's clearly got artistic value despite its bawdy rating, should it be made available to as many people as possible?

Operation Kino 136: Ridley Scott's Auteurist Cred, Plus Our Favorite Sex Scenes
The trailer doesn’t really show us anything that earns the film’s NC-17 rating, which Sundance Selects thankfully decided to keep, rather than chopping the film up to earn an R-rating. I’m a bigger fan of the slightly more risqué NSFW international trailer, and I don’t even speak enough French to understand what anyone is saying.

Blue Is The Warmest Color U.S. Trailer Is A Tame And Dialogue-Free Look At The Cannes Favorite
The best film festivals aren't always the best vacation spots-- the Sundance Film Festival happens at the peak of ski season and most of its attendees are stuck inside watching movies, and while Toronto is a lovely city, it's not exactly a top relaxation destination. But it's hard to beat the combination of Telluride, Colorado over Labor Day weekend-- blue skies, moderate temperatures, endless mountain views-- and the variety of films the fest lines up

The Five Can't-Miss Movies Playing At The 2013 New York Film Festival
Though she has spent most most of her career making films in her homeland of France, Lea Seydoux's American film career was given a serious boost in 2011. While the model/actress has had roles in English-language titles before - Quentin Tarantino's Inglouious Basterds and Ridley Scott's Robin Hood come to mind - last year she had significant roles in both Woody Allen's Midnight in Paris and Brad Bird's Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol.
