Blue Is the Warmest Colour, a three-hour French film about two women who fall in love, is leaping from the art house to the mainstream as it arrives in UK cinemas this weekend.
A Cannes Film Festival Palme d'Or winner back in May, Abdellatif Kechiche's drama immediately hit the headlines thanks to its graphic (and prolonged) depictions of lesbian sex and the subsequent rows that erupted between the director and star Léa Seydoux.
Step outside of the controversy, however, and what's left is a love story that's both tender and utterly heart-shattering. Blue also features a stunning breakthrough performance from Adèle Exarchopoulos and is well worth seeking out if you want a change from big budget Hollywood fare.
