Lesbian Drama “Blue” U.S. Date Revealed

Abdellatif Kechiche’s Palme d’Or-winning lesbian romance drama “Blue Is The Warmest Color” has finally scored a U.S. release date.

North American distributors Sundance Selects have set an October 25th release for the film, and have already submitted it for screenings at upcoming Fall film festivals like Telluride, Toronto and New York.

Scoring raves at Cannes, the film is shut out of next year’s Oscars race due to the film being released in France after the September 30th cutoff date for qualification.

Attempts were made to open the movie in limited release in France, and by Sundance Selects to appeal to AMPAS, in both cases they were shot down.
