Synopsis: Adèle (Adèle Exarchopoulos) is a sensitive fifteen-year-old student. She is, essentially, an ordinary kid, until she realizes that her sexual desires turn more towards her own gender than the boys who ask her out. After meeting a blue-haired stranger, the confident and assertive Emma (Léa Seydoux), Adèle soon finds herself tentatively visiting gay bars, and, shortly thereafter, wrapped in the arms and legs of her new lover, enjoying the delights of first love.
Blue is the Warmest Color screens in Ottawa at The ByTowne Nov. 15-24.
