Two of the films that caused the most buzz at this year’s Cannes featured graphic gay sex, but it was the lesbian-themed Blue If The Warmest Colour walked off with the Palm d’Or. The film has just been given an NC-17 rating in the US, which suggests that while director Abdellatif Kechiche though he might have to cut the movie for a US release, it’s actually going to be released uncut when it hits cinemas on October 25th.
You can taker a look at the trailer above.
Here’s the synopsis: ‘At 15, Adele doesn’t question it: a girl goes out with boys. Her life is turned upside down the night she meets Emma, a young woman with blue hair, who will allow her to discover desire, to assert herself as a woman and as an adult. In front of others, Adele grows, seeks herself, loses herself, finds herself…’ Lea Seydoux and Adele Exarchopolis star in the movie, and it was a lengthy sex scene between the two that got people talking at Cannes.
