Blue Valentine

The 31st movie I've watched this year is Blue Valentine, with Michelle Williams and Ryan Gosling. 

It's been five days since I watched it, and I still catch myself thinking over the plot and characterization.  What I find most interesting is:
1.  The film handles divorce with a new, real, and welcome perspective. 
2.  The man is the more sympathetic character.
3.  The couple was never a strong match.  Though he loves her it's not clear why, and the relief of being loved is not enough to sustain her long-term.

This was a tough movie to watch, yet it was very good.
