"A shattering masterpiece about sexual awakening, heartbreak and self-discovery." –The Atlantic

A 15-year-old girl named Adèle (Adéle Exarchopoulos) is approaching adulthood and dreams of experiencing her first love. A handsome male classmate falls hard for her, but an unsettling erotic reverie upsets the romance before it begins. Adèle imagines that the mysterious, blue-haired girl she encountered in the street slips into her bed and possesses her with overwhelming pleasure. That blue-haired girl is a confident, older art student named Emma (Léa Seydoux), who will soon enter Adèle's life for real, making way for an intense and complicated love story that spans a decade and is touchingly universal in its depiction.
