Marriage is what’s created out of the synergy between a couple, and since every human being is unique what they both create therefore is unique from all other marriages. Blue Valentine explores the end of the marriage of Dean (Ryan Gosling) and Cindy (Michelle Williams) after what was a happy meeting and courtship. Viewers would conclude early on that oh we’ve all heard that story before, but since the marriage of Dean and Cindy is unique we haven’t heard their story from before. This is what the movie tries to impart.
But it isn’t all tragic as there are some really funny scenes and lines put in like Gosling’s matter-of-fact “this is a robot’s vagina”, describing the interior design of their motel room.
