I'm a bit paranoid about spoiling films, but I'm attempting to share more thoughts along with these film posts. I admit I put off watching this for a while when I saw that it was just shy of 3 hours long. Once I began watching I was quickly drawn into Adèle's story and the level of intimacy the audience shares with her. I felt like a fly on the wall witnessing Adèle's transformation. The emotional scenes are raw and at times difficult to watch. There were even moments where I wanted to cringe. I will say, this film would've been more crushing if I had watched it during another point of my life. The cafe scene. Ugh.
