About the Movie
Academy-Award®-nominees Ryan Gosling (HALF NELSON, THE NOTEBOOK) and Michelle Williams (BROKEBACK MOUNTAIN, SHUTTER ISLAND) star in Blue Valentine, an intimate, shattering portrait of a disintegrating marriage. Once passionately in love, Dean (Gosling) and Cindy (Williams) try to rekindle their lost feelings by spending a night in a hotel, remembering what brought them together six years earlier. Moving between the present and the past courtship of these two, this award-winning movie captures both the promise of new romance and the brutal heartbreak that comes with fading love.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Blue Valentine has a rare emotional intensity. There is no way to prepare for its final frames, inevitable as they are.
Fresh: An autopsy of a failed marriage, it contrasts the giddy honeymoon beginning with the sad denouement after dysfunction has devastated the groundwork of hope and newness.
Fresh: Michelle Williams and Ryan Gosling tear up the screen.
Fresh: Blue Valentine comes on like a bittersweet cautionary tale.
Very emotional, but good
This movie broke my heart. Watching the painful deterioration of a marriage is non too pleasant, but this movie is done in such a brilliant, non-pretentious way. I had to remind myself that it was just a movie and that I was not watching my parents' split..
Must see! Michelle and Ryan will break your heart but that is why you will love this movie.
That this is "realistic" is deeply troubling
If you enjoy intimately witnessing the deterioration of a dysfunctional relationship then you will enjoy this movie. It is unsettling from start to finish. The dark side of human emotion is exposed in this film. That so many people seem to relate to this is tragic.
