Image from the film Blue
Winner of the Palme d’Or at the 2013 Cannes Film Festival, the film follows Adèle who is approaching adulthood and dreams of experiencing her first love. A handsome male classmate falls hard for her, but an unsettling erotic reverie upsets the romance before it begins. Adèle imagines that the mysterious, blue-haired girl she encountered in the street slips into her bed and possesses her with overwhelming pleasure. That blue-haired girl is a confident older art student named Emma, who will soon enter Adèle's life for real, making way for an intense and complicated love story that spans a decade and is touchingly universal in its depiction. In French language with English subtitles. (2K DCP presentation)

The film contains graphic nudity and sexual situations.
