First Image & Poster For 'Secret Of The Grain' Director Abdellatif Kechiche's 'Blue Is The Warmest Color' With Léa Seydoux

Abdellatif Kechiche has been working on his craft meticulously since his 2000 debut “La faulte a Voltaire,” often garnering great acclaim in the process. Perhaps the most celebrated and heralded film in his oeuvre thus far has been “The Secret of the Grain,” which earned him the top prize at the Cesar Awards in France and a special jury prize in Venice back in 2007 (and a picture that when it was released stateside, we called One Of The Best Films Of 2008). Now, he’s back with his latest, the upcoming lesbian romantic drama “Blue Is the Warmest Colour,” and a teaser poster and photo have been unveiled for the film.

Abdellatif Kechiche has been working on his craft meticulously since his 2000 debut “La faulte a Voltaire,” often garnering great acclaim in the process. Perhaps the most celebrated and heralded film in his oeuvre thus far has been “The Secret of the Grain,” which earned him the top prize at the Cesar Awards in France and a special jury prize in Venice back in 2007 (and a picture that when it was released stateside, we called One Of The Best Films Of 2008). Now, he’s back with his latest, the upcoming lesbian romantic drama “Blue Is the Warmest Colour,” and a teaser poster and photo have been unveiled for the film.

An adaptation of Julie Maroh's graphic novel "Blue," the film stars rising French actress Lea Seydoux ("Sister," "Mission: Impossible -- Ghost Protocol") and Adele Exarchopoulos, and follows Adele, a teenager who unexpectedly falls in love with another girl, Emma, who is noted for her striking blue hair. While her affection with Emma (Seydoux) grows over time, Adele finds it difficult to escape the judgment of family and friends.

As of now, there’s no word on when “Blue Is the Warmest Colour” is expected to be released. Kechiche is a favorite at the Venice Film Festival, but given that we’re already getting promotional materials from the film, could we expect to see it at the Croisette in May? Fingers crossed.
