Directed by Abdellatif Kechiche
Cast: With Léa Seydoux, Adèle Exarchopoulos
Rated NC-17, 179 minutes
French with English subtitles
Format: DCP

Acclaimed French filmmaker Abdellatif Kechiche’s latest, based on Julie Maroh’s graphic novel, was the sensation of this year’s Cannes Film Festival even before it was awarded the Palme d’Or. Adèle Exarchopoulos is a young woman whose longings and ecstasies and losses are charted across a span of several years. Léa Seydoux (Midnight in Paris) is the older woman who excites her desire and becomes the love of her life. Kechiche’s movie is, like the films of John Cassavetes, an epic of emotional transformation that pulses with gestures, embraces, furtive exchanges, and arias of joy and devastation…a profoundly moving hymn to both love and life. No one under 17 may be admitted.

Rated NC-17 (No one under 17 may be admitted), 179 minutes. French with English subtitles. $7 - $4.  Acclaimed French filmmaker Abdellatif Kechiche’s latest, based on Julie Maroh’s graphic novel, was the sensation of this year’s Cannes Film Festival even before it was awarded the Palme d’Or.
