Blue Valentine

Watched Blue Valentine starring Ryan Gosling and Michelle Williams few days back, it’s a really interesting examination of how a marriage fell apart. It’s especially jarring when they juxtapose the scenes when they first met and began their sweet courtship and the scenes in the present time where they don’t seem to be listening to each other anymore. I particularly like the scene near the end when Ryan Gosling threw away his wedding ring in a moment of anger after they had a fight but still went back to look for it after he calmed down. And when Michelle Williams helped him to look for it, you can tell that they do still love each other despite the threat of a divorce.

And their song, “You and Me” is a real hidden gem that was uncovered.
