"“Blue is the Warmest Color” covers six years in the life of Adèle (Adèle Exarchopoulos, little known now, but not for long), who, at the film’s start is a quiet 17-year-old high schooler living with her middle-class parents outside the northern French city of Lille. The story’s catalyst comes in the alluring, blue-haired form of Emma (Léa Seydoux, whose star has now officially risen), a lesbian graduate student and artist from a loving, bourgeois-bohemian family."
