Movie News: Blue Is the Warmest Color takes top honor at Cannes

The lesbian romance Blue Is the Warmest Color: The Life of Adele won the Palme d’Or, the top honor at the Cannes Film Festival, which ended today. The Palme, which the jury awards to its choice of 20 films in competition, is one of cinema’s greatest honors.

The Steven Spielberg-led jury awarded the Palme not just to director Abdellatif Kechiche but also to its two main stars, Adele Exarchopoulos and Lea Seydoux.

The film is about a 15-year-old girl who falls in love with an older woman. It’s nearly three hours and features lengthy, graphic sex scenes.

“The film is a great love story that made us all feel privileged to be invited to see this story of deep love and deep heartbreak,” Spielberg told reporters, according to an article on “The director didn’t put any constraints on the narrative.”

The Coen Bros. new film, Inside Llewyn Davis, took home the Grand Prix, Canne’s second most prestigious award. The film, which stars Oscar Isaac, Justin Timberlake and Carey Mulligan, opens on December 6.
