Cannes 2013: Meet Lea Seydoux and Adele Exarchopoulos, young stars of Vie d'Adele

Thursday May 23, 2013 - 17h37

Director Abdellatif Kechiche along with Lea Seydoux, Vincent Maraval, Adele Exarchopoulos, Brahim Chioua posed at the photo call for the film La Vie D'Adele held at the Palais Des Festivals as part of the 66th Cannes Film Festival on 23 May 2013.

All smiles

Cannes International Film Festival continued today and as the cast gathered for the La Vie d'Adele photo call there was plenty of smooching and some pretty stylish looks.

The film has been highly anticipated in France and, as Adele Exarchopoulos and Lea Seydoux posed for photos, they could hardly contain their excitement. They were hugging each other, giggling and kissing Director Abdellatif Kechiche on the cheek.

La Vie D'Adele (The Life of Adele) is based on the novel Blue is the Warmest Colour by Julie Maroh and tells the story of a love affair between two women. They meet when the lead character Adele, following a difficult breakup with her boyfriend, visits a bar with her gay friend only to meet an enticing girl with short blue hair called Emma. They begin an affair and the colour blue symbolises happiness throughout the film. But as the cracks begin to show in the affair, Emma lets the blue grow out and, as she returns to blonde, the relationship falls apart.

Great reviews

Critics have already been singing its praises. The Guardian described it as "genuinely passionate filmmaking" and praised Adele Exarchopoulos and Lea Seydoux for their sympathetic portrayals.

It looked as if they were proud as punch of their debuts and they certainly held their own at the festival. Adele Exarchopoulos' floral number looked fabulous with her tousled dip-dyed bob whilst Lea Seydoux made an excellent choice with her little black dress. We like the way they kept their beauty looks simple with just a touch of lipstick.

The flick isn't out until later this year but it looks like the girls are ready for success.
