Blue Valentine has hit the headlines this weekend, as the Motion Picture Association of America has just rated it NC-17, which is a severe rating in the US. I'm going to see the movie ahead of the London Film Festival this morning to see if I can work out what's caused the stir.
The drama stars Ryan Gosling and Michelle Williams as a married couple whose relationship is in a downward spiral. The trailer shows both moments of new relationship bliss and emotional upset, with Ryan singing over the top of the footage. The film got great reviews coming out of Sundance (including from my girl Buzz), and I can't wait to see the performances from these two. Watch the trailer, and tell me if you agree when you read more.
