Lesbian Love Movie Wins At Cannes Film Festival
Everybody loves lesbians, and it showed at the Cannes Film Festival after Abdellatif Kechiche’s “Blue is the Warmest Color,” a coming-of-age drama which tells the story of a lesbian relationship, took home the Palme d’Or.
The movie stars Adèle Exarchopoulos and Léa Seydoux
“Blue is the Warmest Color” was awarded the night’s biggest award by an esteemed jury including Steven Spielberg, Christoph Waltz, Ang Lee, and Nicole Kidman.
“The jury, headed by Steven Spielberg, took the unusual move of awarding the Palme not just to Kechiche, but also to the film’s two stars: Adele Exarchopoulos and Lea Seydoux,” the AP reports. “The three clutched each other as they accepted the award, one of cinema’s greatest honors.”
“Blue is the Warmest Color” beat out The Coen Brothers’ “Inside Llewyn Davis,” which took home the Grand Prix award.
