Blue is the Warmest Color by elliewriter on Polyvore
The blow back has begun for certain theaters; namely, New York’s IFC Center, which are permitting teenage audiences to attend IFC Films’ NC-17-rated French-language pic, “Blue Is the Warmest Color.”
Tim Winter, president of the Parents Television Council, a non-partisan educational org advocating “responsible entertainment,” issued a letter Thursday criticizing the IFC Center for its decision to allow teens into the controversial film.
“Blue Is the Warmest Color,” which won the Palme d’Or at this year’s Cannes Film Festival, opened limited last weekend at four theaters, averaging a solid $25,079 per screen. Two years ago, Fox Searchlight’s “Shame,” which also generated heavy media attention surrounding its Nc-17 rating, averaged nearly $35,000 from 10 debut locations.-imbd
|I saw Blue Is The Warmest Color last night, and it was definitely one of the rawest movies I’ve ever seen. Léa Seydoux and Adèle Exarchopoulos were reaaaaaally fucking committed to their roles. At a runtime of over three hours, it didn’t even feel that long because you were so enveloped in their story. And I’m not gonna go to much into the notorious sex scene, but I will say that watching it in a room full of people was less than comfortable. I couldn’t help but laugh at how tense the room felt. -Joey|
