Blue is the Warmest Color (2013) has a Palme d'Or on its plate to condition the viewer of high expectations. The film is quite lengthy told in a quintessential manner with irrelevantly long shots of physical exposure. However, this is neutralized by exquisite performances from its lead acts.

For your consideration:
  • Acting: Adele Exarchopoulos as Adele
  • Acting: Lea Seydoux as Emma
  • Directing
