Blue is the Warmest Color, based on a graphic novel, opens in the United States in limited release October 25. It tells “The story of a young lesbian couple's beginning, middle and possible end,” and got the highest award—the Palme d'Or—at the Cannes film festival. It is rated NC-17 because of explicit sex, and is already the subject of controversy because of how the male director approached the filming of the sex between the two leads.
Beyond the behind-the-scenes discussion, however, apparently is a lovely, touching film about a girl's exploration of her own identity.
