Honestly, I'm not really sure what the hype was about. The movie dragged, the prolonged sex scenes were unnecessary, and like in many other LGBT/queer films the story ends in calamity. It romanticizes the all-too-common gay/lesbian tragedy theme we see over and over in queer films without so much as a strong representation of the gay community. Also, I'm not a fan of the bi-erasure and misogyny portrayed in this film. The only reason my scoring isn't any lower is because Seydoux and Exarchopoulos' acting were exceptional.
