Adele From 'Blue is the Warmest Color' Gets a Red Band FYC Trailer
For Your Consideration: Abdellatif Kechiche in Blue is the Warmest Color, one of my Top 5 films of 2013. With voting for the Academy Awards now underway, IFC Films has debuted another rather sultry new red band trailer for Cannes' Palme d'Or winner Blue is the Warmest Color, focusing mostly on breakout actress Adèle Exarchopoulos being pushed for a much-deserved Oscar nomination. I really, really hope she gets one with a phenomenal first-time lead performance in the film, as she's part of what makes it such an outstanding character study. I love this film - read my Cannes praise. The other half of that excellence is actress Léa Seydoux, who is also featured in this. See the new trailer below and catch the film playing now.
Blue is the Warmest Color, originally called La vie d'Adèle: chapitre 1 & 2 in French, is directed by French-Tunisian filmmaker Abdellatif Kechiche, who co-wrote the script with Ghalia Lacroix based on Julie Maroh's graphic novel. Adèle Exarchopoulos is 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. The film originally premiered at the 2013 Cannes Film Festival where it won the coveted Palme d'Or prize (and was my favorite film of the festival). IFC & Sundance Selects already released Blue is the Warmest Color in limited theaters earlier this fall - check local listings. First full trailer.
