Blue Is the Warmest Color is a coming of age film about young love, growth, and freedom. The film follows Adele, a teenager who finds herself questioning her sexuality when she becomes attracted to a woman she sees in the street. The ups and downs of a complicated relationship are shown, depicting a slow maturation in Adele conflicting with her desire for freedom. The film also explores themes of social class and political views, in contrasting the families of the two girls. The film has made more headlines for controversy surrounding its production than for the quality of its story. After its completion, members of the production crew claimed that director Abdellatif Kechiche treated them badly during production. The film's two stars also complained about the director's behavior and said they would not work with him again. The actresses later recanted their stories somewhat. For his part, Kechiche thought the negative press "sullied" the film irreparably. The film was released, however, to mainly positive reviews from critics.
