Blue is the Warmest Color -
This movie won awards. It won the freaking Palm D'Whatever award at Cannes. Plus, it got plenty of praise from critics. So it popped up on Netflix, and I decided to give it a try. I didn't even realize it was a 3 hour long movie until I paused it and saw the time on the bottom.
Anyway, it's about a young girl trying to figure out her sexuality. We start in High school and move on from there. This girl looks a lot like Kristen Stewart, but prettier. Pretty in a normal kind of way that I liked. Not glammed up, Hollywood pretty.
It's a very real and raw movie. It's NC-17 for a reason. The sex scenes, especially. There is one long sex scene between the two main girls that I would classify as true porn. Yowza. I get why they did it, but it could have been cut in half, and the point would have been made just the same. BTW, them ladies both have killer bodies.
It was a good story, and nowhere near your typical love story that's churned out on assembly lines. I predicted some of what was going to happen, but there's plenty that I didn't. These characters are real, vulnerable, and make all sorts of mistakes.
Be careful who you watch this with, though.
