At fifteen, Adele (Adele Exarchopolous) doesn’t question it: girls go out with boys. Her life is changed forever when she meets and connects with the young blue-haired Emma (Lea Seydoux) at a lesbian bar. Adele falls for Emma despite being ridiculed by her gay-bashing friends. Adele immediately finds herself in a passionate relationship and develops an intense sexual bonding with Emma. When they both become committed and live together, social class differences begin to emerge. Adele grows, seeks herself, loses herself and finds herself again. Loosely adapted from a Gallic graphic novel by Julie Maroh, director Abdellatif Kechiche captures extended long sequences of Adele and Emma both in and out of bed which had the Cannes audience and critics captivated for the full three hours and yearning for more.
