Blue Valentine is a 2010 romantic drama film written and directed by Derek Cianfrance that premiered in competition at the 26th Sundance Film Festival. It was written by Cianfrance and Cami Delavigne and Joey Curtis, and stars Michelle Williams and Ryan Gosling. The film was scored by Brooklyn band Grizzly Bear.

The film depicts a married couple, Dean Pereira (Gosling) and Cindy Heller (Williams), shifting back and forth in time between their courtship and the dissolution of their marriage several years later.

Dean is a young high school dropout, working for a New York City moving company. Cindy is a pre-med student living with her unhappy parents and caring for her grandmother in Pennsylvania. They meet by chance and fall deeply in love in a matter of weeks. They rush into marriage after discovering Cindy is pregnant from a previous boyfriend, Bobby (Mike Vogel). Dean agrees to raise Cindy’s daughter, Frankie, as his own. Before the wedding Bobby, aware of Cindy’s pregnancy, finds and assaults Dean at his job.

This narrative of their courtship is intercut with that of a weekend near the end of their marriage. By this point, they live in rural Pennsylvania and Dean works at painting houses while Cindy is a nurse. In the hope of resurrecting their troubled relationship, Dean brings Cindy to a motel, but they fight, and Cindy is called away early in the morning to work at the hospital. Dean shows up at the hospital drunk, leading to an intense argument and violent altercation with a doctor. Dean tries to console Cindy into giving their relationship another chance due to fear of raising Frankie in a broken home, Cindy argues that their home is already broken. Dean decides to give Cindy space and leaves, though Frankie runs after him asking him to stay. As Frankie is encouraged to return to Cindy, Dean walks off into the distance.

    Una excelente película, contada con sencillez y maestría a partes iguales. Triste, porque sabemos que a la vida real no siempre se le puede cambiar el final.

    Michelle Williams nominada como mejor actriz en los Oscar 2011. Habrá que seguirle la pista.
