Blue Valentine

22 Nov

Blue Valentine” follows the relationship between Dean (played by Ryan Gosling) and Cindy (by Michelle Williams) over a few years.

It starts as current – we see their marriage as quarrels and frustrations, but then we flash back to when they first met. Dean is seen as a likeable guy – a removalist who delivers to the retirement home where Cindy’s grandmother is living. They meet and start their relationship there.

In this movie, both Ryan Gosling and Michelle Williams are fantastic as the totally believable characters in this relationship. It is gritty, realistic and a very good drama. There are ups and downs and this will take you on the journey, but don’t go if you need to see a “feel good” movie.
