Blue is the Warmest Color movie scene

Adèle Excharpoulos (l.) and Léa Seydoux fall for each other in Blue is the Warmest Color.

The colorful, electrifying romance Blue is the Warmest Color, the French drama romance that took the Cannes Film Festival by storm courageously dives into a young woman’s experiences of first love and sexual awakening.

The 2013 movie stars newcomer Adèle Excharpoulos as a high schooler who, much to her own surprise, plunges into a thrilling relationship with a female twenty something art student, played by Léa Seydoux (Mysteries of Lisbon).

Directed by Abdellatif Kechiche (The Secret of the Grain), this detailed, intimate, three-hour romantic epic sensitively renders the erotic abandon of youth. It’s been getting some serious buzz from critics and audiences and is already being widely embraced as a defining love story for the new century.

Presented in French with English subtitles, the DVD and Blu-ray contain the following features:

• New high-definition digital transfer, approved by director Abdellatif Kechiche, with 5.1 surround DTS-HD Master Audio soundtrack on the Blu-ray edition
• Trailer and TV spot
• New English subtitle translation
• A booklet featuring an essay by critic B. Ruby Rich
