#123movies #fmovies #putlocker #gomovies #solarmovie #soap2day Watch Full Movie Online Free – Dean Pereira and Cindy Heller Pereira are a young, working class married couple – Dean currently working as a painter, and Cindy working as a nurse in a medical clinic – with a young daughter named Frankie. Despite their relatively tender ages, they are both ravaged by the life they’ve eked out together and by the experiences they’ve had leading into their marriage. Dean, a high school drop out, comes from a broken home, where he never really had a mother figure. He never saw himself getting married or having a family despite falling in love at first sight with Cindy. He doesn’t have any professional ambition beyond his current work – which he enjoys since he feels he can knock off a beer at 8 o’clock in the morning without it affecting his work – although Cindy believes he has so much more potential in life. Cindy also comes from a dysfunctional family, with her own mother and father not setting an example of a harmonious married or family life. One of her previous serious relationships was with Bobby Ontario, that relationship which has a profound affect on many aspects of her marriage to Dean. Dean and Cindy head off on an overnight getaway together without Frankie, the getaway which may provide a clearer picture if their marriage can survive its many issues.
Plot: Dean and Cindy live a quiet life in a modest neighborhood. They appear to have the world at their feet at the outset of the relationship. However, his lack of ambition and her retreat into self-absorption cause potentially irreversible cracks in their marriage.

You will not see better performances this year
No matter what else is yet to be released, you will not see two better performances this year than Ryan Gosling and Michelle Williams.
It’s almost impossible to imagine anyone in anything coming close. In the defensive, aggressive way he turns every line of dialogue around on the speaker as a hidden affront to his insecurities, Gosling reminded me of no less than De Niro in Raging Bull as the older Dean. Playing the younger version, he channels the charm, romanticism, and recklessness of a 1960s Paul Newman.
Williams, who has emerged as the best American actress 30 and under, pulls off a performance that recalls Gena Rowlands’ work with Cassavettes. Which is not to say either is an imitation, they aren’t “doing method” or aping the authenticity of previous greats. They’re 100% the real deal, so good you can only compare them to the best, and they fully embody these characters in every frame. They made me believe, they made me care, they broke my heart.
The story is a familiar one because it’s the most common source of drama in life and art but avoids cliché and instead handles the subject with uncommon insight and grace. The lack of context scene-to-scene keeps the audience engaged and on their feet, filling in the intentional holes with their own experience and lending the film a universal relatability. In good times and bad, we can recognize our own triumphs and failures in love. It captures the joyous highs and devastating lows of relationships better than anything I can recall. Gosling singing while Williams tap dances, what she reveals to Gosling on the bridge and how he reacts, the scene in the doctor’s office towards the end… they achieve that sense of cinematic transcendence so rare these days. They simply don’t craft scenes like this or give actors roles this fully realized in Hollywood anymore.
It’s clear this was a labor of love for all involved and it paid off in spades. This is the best American film I’ve seen this year.
Sweet And Emotionally Devastating
BLUE VALENTINE is both sweet and emotionally devastating. It’s raw in every sense of the word. Writer/director Derek Cianfrance has crafted a brave and genuine relationship-character study. Ryan Gosling and Michelle Williams floor me. Acting doesn’t get better than this
Dramas about a couple whose relationship is warm and fuzzy at first but then grows cold and bitter over time is not something new. You don’t have to go back to classic films in the 60s, you could just take last year’s indie Peter and Vandy for example. So there have been many attempts to capture relationships on the big screen that’s not fantastical but more grounded and more honest. I believe that BLUE VALENTINE has perfected it.
What’s genius about Cianfrance’s story is that the dialogue doesn’t hold any type of pretense to it. I attended the press screening and read the press notes afterward and was amazed by the long, grueling process that Cainfrance went through along with his stars Ryan Gosling and Michelle Williams just to get the kind of characters they have in mind. Some of the scenes you see in BLUE VALENTINE were contributions of Gosling and Williams who had complete understanding of the characters and the goal of the story. The story shows you the past, how these two characters met, what made them fall for each other, romantic and heartfelt.. and then.. the present, of what time does to a relationship when communication is not clear anymore and misunderstandings take over like an ugly bacteria that worsen every situation, it just doesn’t look hopeful from that point on.
Last year we had the film Precious which was a pretty heavy, emotionally draining drama. This year is BLUE VALENTINE which serves similar kick but it’s less cinematic and even more performance-driven. I can’t even begin to fairly describe how astounding Gosling and Williams are in this film. Their performances here will be the kind that aspiring actors and theater students will learn from for years to come. They’re spontaneous and unadulterated. I’m completely amazed by the way the play the fights and the arguments. As Dean and Cindy, Gosling and Williams respectively convince you that they once love each other and now they may or may not be able to stand each other’s presence.
Which leads me to the characters themselves, I don’t think Cianfrance created them so that you the audience would take sides or try to decide which of them is right or wrong because I believe that these are two individuals who eventually realize that they’re living not just with each other but also with regrets of the past, which make it very hard to be grateful,.. you can tell that they’re ‘suffocated’.
One could argue that Cindy is right in that Dean seems too content, like he doesn’t have ambition, he’s short tempered and very demanding. And one could argue that Dean is right in that Cindy is too consumed by the thoughts of what could’ve, would’ve, should’ve been if the her choices had been different. Their relationship is not physically abusive but it might as well be, there are times when things get heated, you would think it’s only a matter of time before somebody would get seriously hurt.
It seems like somewhere along the way, Dean and Cindy just aren’t in the same wavelength anymore. Their unhappiness stems from the fact that they no longer know how to make each other happy. Cianfrance wants to remind the audience that marriage is hard, it’s a lot of work and it can get rocky, it’s no laughing matter. If you’re looking for a happy ending or perhaps Dean and Cindy have a moment where they’d still be friends, BLUE VALENTINE doesn’t offer that, what it offers you is a depiction of both the beauty and the hardship of relationship/marriage. It speaks to those who may have grown up in a home where the parents aren’t your stereotypical love dubby mom and dad you see on 7th Heaven-type soap operas. So if you don’t come out appreciating BLUE VALENTINE, not even for the performances, then it’s possible that it’s because you’re not the intended audience.
