Cannes Film Festival Honors Lesbian Flick

0001Blue Is The Warmest Color was handed the Palme d’Or at the Cannes Film Festival. The sex-soaked, three hour epic based on the graphic novel, Blue Angel. According to the LA Times, the film “tells the story of a 15-year old girl who falls in love with a woman.” The film drummed up some controversy due to its graphic sex scenes.

“I’m not sure it will be allowed to play in every state,” Steven Spielberg told the paper. The director stood as jury president at this year’s film festival, which also included Nicole Kidman and Ang Lee. Spielberg spoke highly of the movie, calling it a “great love story.”

Other films honored included Inside Llewyn Davis (starring Justin Timberlake) and A Touch Of Sin.
