I’m a sucker for a love story and this movie, Blue Valentine, fully sucked me in and broke my heart. In the best way possible. It was painful, beautiful and real. It flips back and forth in time in the life of a working-class married couple, between falling in love and being so far from it.
Ryan Gosling (swoon-worthy) and Michelle Williams made it so believable.
Great soundtrack, too. The film was scored by Grizzly Bear and includes the most amazing love song performance by Ryan Gosling (you can view this on the link to the movie’s website above). He wrote and performed several songs for the soundtrack actually. And that track by Penny and the Quarters (You and Me) is the best song …
Anyway, I thought the whole thing was great. A great, raw, romantic tragedy. I recommend you watch it.
