French award-winning gay-themed drama directed by Abdel Kechiche. The film follows the 17-year-old closeted student Adèle (Adèle Exarchopoulos) as she pursues a passionate and fiery relationship with an older and 'out' blue-haired lesbian called Emma (Léa Seydoux). Throughout their relationship the two young women learn a lot about the pains and joys of being in love and the importance of staying true to oneself.
A moving film of a tender love story was good to watch. It fails to explore several questions posed. They are coming out to one set of parents and the girl's classmates disappear after one playground altercation. The ending offers little solution to her problems with the final scene of her walking away. Nevertheless I enjoyed it,hence four stars.
