Blue Valentine Preview/Synopsis

December 29

Directed by Derek Cianfrance and starring Ryan Gosling, Michelle Williams, Mike Vogel, Jon Donman,Ben Shenkman, written by Cianfrance, Joey Curtis and Cami Delavigne, Cinematography by Andrij Parekh ( Sugar, Half Nelson ) Editing by Jim Helton and Ron Pafone, Original score by Grizzly Bear.

The film centers on a married couple, Dean ( Gosling ) and Cindy ( Williams ), and their relationship over a number of years by shifting between different time periods. Problems with the marriage center around Cindy's ambition, juxtaposed to Dean's contentment to center his life around his wife and child.

Rated R for strong sexual graphic content, language and a beating. 120 min.

Oscar chances ? Pretty good for both Gosling and Williams. Both have some precursor nominations plus Golden Globe nods, so they may stand a chance. Screenplay is a long shot but could sneak in.

Started to really pay attention to film ( movies ) what was going on in front of the camera, but more interestingly, behind it as well at about as far back as age 10. Motion pictures ( when good ) are a fascinating medium. All the work and prep that goes into filmmaking. It's an amazing process !
