Blue Valentine, by filmmaker Derek Cianfrance, constructs a love story between a breaking marriage. Cindy (Michelle Williams) and Dean (Ryan Gosling), who also have a daughter together, make a getaway to a themed hotel to rekindle the romance. This story was very emotional and very touching. It touched many hearts and has made an impact with its realistic and powerful acting. The story line is sad but a definite portrayal of modern-day love and how many things have changed. Love isn’t as easy as it was back in the day, but true love will always conquer anything.
