I attended two sneak preview movies this week; “About Time” and “Blue is the Warmest Color.”
I’ve always dreamed of how it would feel to travel through time. Naturally, About Time piqued my interest, big time! That is why I jumped at the opportunity to attend the sneak preview! The movie was directed by Richard Curtis, with four main characters: Domhnall Gleeson as Tim; Rachel McAdams as Mary; Bill Nighy as Dad; Lydia Wilson as Kit Kat; Lindsay Duncan as Mum. The story has many layers: it’s about family, insecurities, finding love. All typical in today’s world. I laughed, I cried, I fell in love with the characters and the movie and especially the music.
“Blue is the Warmest Color” directed by Abdellatif Kechiche is a very powerful, intense and highly emotional love story between two women. The movie is rated NC-17 due to the highly graphic sex scenes between the two female lovers. Lea Seydoux is Emma, who is older, and artsy. Adele Exarchopoulos is Adele, the young, beautiful 18-year-old who is trying to discover who she is. I went in to this movie with an open mind and am certainly glad I did. The movie was very emotional and the characters were so very real. A few people did leave the theatre half way into the movie. I am glad I stayed the entire three-hour runtime.
