Editor's Note
A relationship is charted from its promising beginning to its sad collapse in this independent drama from Derek Cianfrance. Dean (Ryan Gosling) meets Cindy (Michelle Williams) when they're in their late teens; he's working for a moving company, she's a college student visiting her elderly grandmother at a home for the elderly. Cindy is dating Bobby (Mike Vogel), her boyfriend from high school, but as she gets to know Dean better, a mutual attraction grows between them. Years later, Dean and Cindy are married and have a daughter, Frankie (Faith Wladyka), but they're clearly not as happy as they once were; Dean loves his daughter but feels distant from his wife, they have to look after an elderly relative (John Doman), and when Cindy bumps into Bobby while running errands, it's clear he still holds a grudge against her. Dean and Cindy go away for a weekend together at a hotel, but it doesn't take long for them to realize that the magic isn't coming back. BLUE VALENTINE received its world premiere at the 2010 Sundance Film Festival.

Expert Review Blue Valentine - Blu-Ray DVD Review
By: Rich Knight Cinema Blend DVD Reviews
Published on: 5/10/2011 10:38 AM
When I originally saw Blue Valentine in the theater last year, I wasn't all that impressed. Sure, the movie was pretty good and slightly depressing, but some critics were hailing it as the best picture of the year, with others saying that Michelle Williams and Ryan Gosling delivered the best performances of their lives. But to be completely honest with you, when I initially saw it, all I kept thinking was, "Is this the same movie that all the critics are raving about?" I thought the movie was just alright, nothing all that special, and that the critics were wrong yet again. But no, after a second viewing of the film, I realize that the critics weren't wrong, after all. I was the one who was wrong....read the full review

Wall Street Journal

USA Today 10 of 10
Gosling and Williams have the most palpable chemistry of any screen couple this year, never striking a false note in this achingly tender tale of a love that implodes before our eyes...When Dean says to Cindy, "Let's be a family," Williams' eyes convey a complicated expression that is at once terrified, hopeful and relieved. Barely 30, these are consummate actors giving masterful performances....Director Derek Cianfrance brilliantly charts the trajectory of their relationship by cross-cutting over a half-dozen years, chronicling intimate details, prosaic moments and devastating epiphanies...Cianfrance shoots with a naturalism that intensifies the story's authenticity, blending blurry images and sharp details. As each scene juxtaposes or blends with the one before, a simple story reveals its complexity...The screenplay is almost like a short story. Symbolism appears in song lyrics, hotel names and incidental visuals...Time shifts are accomplished by modifying the characters' appearances...The heart of this beautifully mesmerizing film comes down to that simple entreaty. Love is all about chance. - Claudia Puig
