On the Radar: Blue Valentine

blueValentine

Salon reviewed Cannes favorite Blue Valentine. I really dig gritty, realistic family dramas. And from the sound of it they don’t get more dirt under the nails than this.

According to Andrew O’Heir:

Director Derek Cianfrance has been working on the film on and off for 12 years, in between collecting unemployment, working odd jobs and making documentaries.

Ryan Gosling and Michelle Williams star as the weathered young couple. Gosling has troubled down to a science: Half Nelson, The Slaughter Rule and The Believer . Williams has had her share of rocky silver-screen romances as well, Brokeback Mountain and The Hawk is Dying come to mind.

The Salon article really gets in deep and has an interview with Gosling and Williams.
