I was lucky enough to see Blue Valentine last week - have you seen it? Michelle Williams really summed it up well in her interview with Marie Claire ::
"...it's a film about what it's like to grow up in that kind of atmosphere of tension and decay...being forever in this pre-trembling of a house that falls....I think of Blue Valentine as a cautionary tale - what happens when you stop paying attention to the reasons you loved each other in the first place, when you let the devil that's in the details eat away at the love."
I honestly couldn't agree more. It stuck with me for so long after I saw it. I was sucked into their relationship and felt that I was going through it along with them. Luckily I was snapped out of it once I left the theater, realizing that my relationship is nothing like that and thanking my lucky stars. But I am still going over it in my head and I'm liking it more and more as the days go by.
If you've seen it, please discuss it with me! I saw it by myself and have not had the chance to talk about it with anyone else!
