There's no speaking in this new trailer for the NC-17 rated French film Blue Is the Warmest Color, but there's a ton of emotional glancing. Starring Adèle Exarchopoulos and Léa Seydoux the film tells the story of the romance between the two women, and was the talk of Cannes after critics and moviegoers witnessed its ten-minute sex scene. The film, which opens here October 25, has continued to generate controversy on its road to release. In an interview early this month with The Daily Beast the two lead actresses decried the experience of making the film and said they would never work with director Abdellatif Kechiche again. The film, however, has been received marvelously by critics and won the Palme d'Or, Cannes top prize.
