When 3 hours feel like 1, you know it's a goodie

The French title of the film is "La Vie D'Adele", which translates as "Adele's Life", and this sums up what the film is about.
The film is often described as a lesbian love story but despite taking a big chunk of the movie, that's not the subject of the film ... the superb Adele (played by impressive Adele Exarchopoulos) is the subject of the film, and we follow her from 15 to about 22 years old. Ultimately it is a coming of age movie, really, and a brilliant one indeed.
Adele is utterly captivating, fascinating, stunning and touching ... you can not help but fall in love with her, at least I know I did.
