Blue Valentine has been raising quite the fuss today, as the Motion Picture Association of America has just slapped it with an NC-17 rating. That may deter some people from heading to theaters, but I'm hopeful that this just-released trailer will persuade them otherwise.
The drama stars Ryan Gosling and Michelle Williams as a married couple whose relationship is unraveling fast. The preview does an excellent job of getting us a peek of just that, flashing between moments of new relationship bliss into emotionally wrought crying — all while Gosling sings in the background. The performances look incredibly good, and the film got great reviews coming out of Sundance (including here on Buzz). Watch the trailer, and tell me if you agree when you read more.
