Love is most certainly part of the human experience, but with every high comes an equal low. Therefore, falling out of love must also occur in life. Derek Cianfrance's <i>Blue Valentine</i> is the story of one such occurrence, of Cindy (Michelle Williams) and Dean (Ryan Gosling) who meet, fall in love, raise a daughter together, and slowly find their relationship falling apart. Dean has talent, but he works as a house painter to pay the bills. Cindy wanted to be a doctor, but unexpectedly got pregnant and works as a physician's assistant instead.
