For the week of December 20th we will be featuring Blue is the Warmest Color in our Screening Room! The film has won two awards from Cannes, the FIPRRESCI Prize, and for the very first time the Palme d’Or was giving to both the actors (Adele Exarchopoulos and Lea Seydoux). Just remember to bring your ID’s because the movie is NC-17.

“BLUE IS THE WARMEST COLOR centers on a 15-year-old girl named Adèle (Exarchopoulos) who is climbing to adulthood and dreams of experiencing her first love. A handsome male classmate falls for her hard, but an unsettling erotic reverie upsets the romance before it begins. Adèle imagines that the mysterious, blue-haired girl she encountered in the street slips into her bed and possesses her with an overwhelming pleasure. That blue-haired girl is a confident older art student named Emma (Seydoux), who will soon enter Adèle’s life for real, making way for an intense and complicated love story that spans a decade and is touchingly universal in its depiction.” (c) IFC
