Ryan Gosling on 'Blue Valentine'

Friday, December 31, 2010

The American film industry never seems to grow tired of portraying young lovers as they meet, fall in love, and get married before settling into an imaginary "happily ever after." But what they almost never present us with is the reality of marriage over time, of the toll that child-rearing, boredom and familiarity can take on a couple in the years after they first see each other across a crowded room. The just-released film, “Blue Valentine,” attempts to tackle these issues.

Starring Ryan Gosling and Michelle Williams as Dean and Cindy, the film shows a couple that’s struggling with their marriage after six years together. Ryan Gosling joins us in studio to talk about the film, which is in theaters today.

I look forward to seeing Mr. Gosling's work. I first saw him in THE NOTEBOOK and will find it interesting to compare how he plays the Dean character differently.
