Blue Valentine

Blue Valentine premiered at Sundance this year and it's been getting good buzz. It stars Ryan Gosling and Michelle Williams in a bittersweet story about a married couple. That by itself is refreshing because most movies about love tend to focus on the struggle of the two people getting together instead of them staying together. The latter offers more depth and with Gosling and Williams in the lead roles you can expect something impressive, their prior work in Half Nelson and Wendy and Lucy showcased a new range so the Blue Valentine pairing is a nice fit.

The cinematography has a naturalistic vibe, so I'm looking forward to seeing how Blue Valentine turns out. No word on a release date but The Weinstein Co. picked it up for distribution. I'll keep you posted as new info becomes available.
