Cannes Takeover


Teenager Adèle’s (Adèle Exarchopoulos) life is turned upside down the night she meets Emma (Léa Seydoux), a young woman with blue hair, who will allow her to discover desire, to assert herself as a woman and as an adult. In front of others, Adèle grows, seeks herself, loses herself, finds herself…

Our take

In one of the most extraordinary film performances in modern cinema, Adèle Exarchopoulos soars as a young woman exploring her sexuality in this masterful coming-of-age chronicle. Winner of the 2013 Palme d’Or for Kechiche and, in a Cannes Film Festival first, Exarchopoulos and co-star Léa Seydoux.
