NYC’s IFC Center welcomes Adèle Exarchopoulos, the breakthrough star of BLUE IS THE WARMEST COLOR, on Wednesday, January 8 at 7:00pm for a Q&A moderated by Village Voice film critic Stephanie Zacharek. Appearing for her first New York in-theater Q&A since the film’s release in October, Ms. Exarchopoulos has astonished audiences from the moment the film premiered in Cannes, where the jury took the unprecedented step of awarding her and co-star Léa Seydoux the Palme d’Or for best film along with director Abdellatif Kechiche.
In this bold, moving and sexy epic, 15-year-old Adèle (Exarchopoulous, in her first major role) finds something lacking in her interactions with high-school boys. Her world is turned upside down when she meets Emma (Seydoux, Midnight in Paris), a blue-haired art student who inspires Adèle to assert her individuality and sexuality. But as the years pass and their relationship deepens, Adèle has to come to terms with who she is–and what she wants.

– “SPARKS WILL FLY. Adèle Exarchopoulos, 19, is a ball of fire in a breakthrough performance of startling power.” – Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
– “Exarchopoulos is remarkable to watch. She so completely embodies the essence of an unconscious and earthy beauty that it feels as if we are spying on an actual life. What we are most certainly seeing is an original talent.” – Betsy Sharkey, Los Angeles Times
– “Utterly fearless… the picture belongs to Exarchopoulos, completely inhabiting a role aptly named after the thesp herself; with her husky voice and sweet, reluctant smile, she plays virtually every emotion a director can demand of an actress, commanding the viewer’s attention and sympathy at every minute.” – Justin Chang, Variety
