NC-17 Rated Palme d'Or Winner 'Blue is the Warmest Color' Trailer
After winning the Palme d'Or prize at the 2013 Cannes Festival (also hitting New York, Toronto and Telluride) and landing a spot at the top of our own Alex Billington's favorite films from the fest, the first trailer for Abdellatif Kechiche's French drama Blue is the Warmest Color. The film is based on Julie Maroh's graphic novel, chronicling the relationship of a lesbian couple. The film generated a lot of buzz, both from controversy and critical acclaim, as the romance between Léa Seydoux (Midnight in Paris) and Adèle Exarchopoulos is pretty graphic, resulting in a rare NC-17 rating, but this trailer is tame. Watch!
