Blue Valentine may have been downgraded from an NC-17 rating to an R, but many of us are still wondering — what is this film all about?
Nothing creates more publicity for a movie than ratings speculation and two sexy stars. The steamy and sexually-charged scene surrounding Michelle Williams and Ryan Gosling in the new movie, Blue Valentine, originally caused the movie to carry an NC-17 rating, but in a last minute change, Blue Valentine was bumped back down to R.
Blue Valentine features Ryan Gosling and Michelle Williams as a young married couple living the painful reality of family life, compared to their past as a care-free dating couple. Doesn’t sound too steamy, right? That’s what we thought, but the film’s use of present and past to move the story, tells a heart-wrenching and raw story of reality — romance to harsh truth in a heartbeat or 24 hours in Blue Valentine’s case.
