Blue Valentine

A love story.


Blue Valentine
They've been married for six years, and things are falling apart very badly. We move back and forth in time between the happy times when they met and fell in love, and now, and try to figure out exactly what went wrong. It's more of a 'relationship study' than a story, but it will linger in your mind long afterwards.

111 minutes.

Box Office
Ray Greene quote iconIt’s no date movie, but it will provoke debate and discussion, and it lingers in the mind far longer than a more typical approach to romance.

eye Weekly
Jason Anderson quote iconIt’s thrilling to see two performers as gifted as Gosling and Williams get the chance to go for broke.

ReelViews
James Berardinelli quote iconWhatever the motivation for seeing it, however, Blue Valentine deserves to be seen. The cumulative experience leaves an aftertaste that, although not bitter, is too strong to be easily washed away. That's the mark of a worthwhile motion picture.

ScreenIt
C. Fuchs quote iconBlue Valentine is one of those films you admire as it unfolds, but will likely never watch again due to its overall sad/downer aura and the fact that it will likely remind many a viewer of their own and possibly similar relationship experiences.

Tomatometer quote iconThis emotionally gripping examination of a marriage on the rocks isn't always easy to watch, but Michelle Williams and Ryan Gosling give performances of unusual depth and power.
