BLUE IS THE WARMEST COLOR's Adèle Exarchopoulos Q&A at IFC Center
I finally caught a screening of the much-talked-about French film, BLUE IS THE WARMEST COLOR at IFC Center in NYC. If you're late to the party, the movie is about a beautiful romance between two young French women, Adèle (Adèle Exarchopoulos) a highschool student who seems to be looking for love in all the wrong places and Emma (Léa Seydoux), a blue-haired artist who rocks Adèle's world. Director Abdellatif Kechiche took his time telling his love and heartache story based on a graphic novel, the movie clocks in at an epic three hours including some lengthy, explicit lesbian love scenes.
I was in the audience at IFC Center for one of the sold out post screening Q&A's with the film's star, Adèle Exarchopoulos. Check out the video below for some interesting insight to the making of BLUE IS THE WARMEST COLOR. If you live in or around NYC, stop by the IFC Center where the film is playing and also where they have a nice deal for any Idahoans out there: "since BLUE IS THE WARMEST COLOR was banned in Idaho, we’re offering a free ticket to any Idahoan who has traveled to New York to see the film. Please present your plane, bus, or train ticket at the box office to claim your pass."
