In Kechiche’s (César-winner The Secret of the Grain) bold and sexy epic, 15-year-old Adèle (astonishing discovery Adèle Exarchopoulous) finds something lacking in her interactions with high-school boys. Her world is turned upside down when she meets Emma (Léa Seydoux, Midnight in Paris), a blue-haired art student who inspires Adèle to assert her individuality and sexuality. But as the years pass and their relationship deepens, Adèle has to come to terms with who she is—and what she wants.
