Adele, a naive young student, experiences the full spectrum of love, loss, happiness, disappointment, and growth with the adventurous, blue-haired Emma. Unrelentingly emotional and much talked-about (the unflinching sex scenes have garnered as much press as the film itself), this is a film that captures young love in all of its glory, and all its desperation. “A simple, even predictable story, yet textured so exquisitely and acted so forcefully as to feel almost revelatory.” (Variety) As we go to press, the film has been awarded Best Foreign Film of 2013 by the Los Angeles Film Critics Association, New York Film Critics Circle, New York Film Critics Online, and the British Independent Film Awards.
