Starring – Ryan Gosling, Michelle Williams
This is a series of “snapshots” in the beginning and ending of a marriage and a love.
They meet, fall in love, marry, fall out of love, separate.
The story is all in the acting, and in the editing. The two sections of their lives – when loving and supportive, and when fed up and destructive – are balanced and intercut throughout the movie.
It’s sometimes difficult to follow, and the viewer leaves the movie wondering what they saw in each other and why they stayed together as long as they had. (And there's quite a lot of sex!)
