Movie Night | Blue Is The Warmest Colour

If you haven't seen this Palme d'Or winner you've most likely heard of it due to the bit of controversy surrounding it...the two main actresses and other crew members had issues with the director Abdellatif Kechiche and much was made of the long and graphic 'rude' scenes', all the more 'shocking' according to the media due to the actors in them both being women. But for this film to be remembered only as 'the one with the lesbian sex scenes' would do it a huge injustice. 

Based on Julie Maroh's graphic novel of the same name, Blue Is The Warmest Colour centres around Adèle (Adèle Exarchopoulos) and her relationship with Emma (Léa Seydoux). Maroh herself has complained the film is just a straight man's fantasy of a lesbian affair which is what put me off watching it for so long. However, after seeing it for myself I disagree. Yes, those scenes are probably unnecessarily long and graphic but they're just a small part of the film. For me, it's a film about love and the fact that the two leads just happen to be women isn't really what the focus is about if you get what I mean. I'd say it's more to do with relationships between people of different social classes...Adèle is from a working class background whilst Emma's family are very different. I won't go into the plot too much, to be honest if I were to just describe the story to you it wouldn't sound all that interesting but it's 100% worth a watch for the masterful performances of the two leads and the way it's filmed. It's just raw, emotional and feels very real. I'm a huge film fan but it takes a lot even for me to not lose concentration after three hours of subtitles (it's  a French speaking picture)...however I just didn't want it to end! Even months after watching it the characters are still with me.

If you have Netflix Blue Is The Warmest Colour is available on there! Have you seen this film? Would love to know what you think!

Hey! Sorry for the blurry mirror selfies but I was just heading out the door and wanted to take outfit pics...I feel like an outfit post is well overdue!You know I wished for winter so I could wear my coats (especially this one <3) but I did not wish for rain. I mean these trainers are suede and new! I feel like I'm taking one step backwards with the blog with these photos haha. But never mind! I'm sorry every post is just based around my room but the boring thing is I spend most of my time indoors because I feel ill and then when I do go out am I fook asking people to take outfit pics for me because the embarrassment would just be next level. Although they might understand, some people I know read this sometimes after three years of secret blogging (it was my blog's birthday the other day and I totally forgot!) because my grandad found it haha!

Anyway, how was your weekend? Mine was spent making cards for Frojo Designs and watching AHS: Coven. As I type I'm on the last episode and I just cannot guess who will be the next Supreme. I haven't seen Freakshow yet but for me this is the best season so far for sure! I don't know how people said it was the worst! Have you seen it? I love it but it does scare me a lot, I don't know why I do it to myself. I also made a start on my Christmas shopping and got sweets for people but then I ate them Saturday night so have to go out and buy them all again...can someone say P-I-G?
