The cast of Blue Valentine includes Ryan Gosling, Michelle Williams, John Doman, Mike Vogel and Maryann Plunkett.
Blue Valentine received positive ratings from the critics.
“The scenes cut so close to the emotional bone that you can understand why they might cause a panic amongst MPAA boardmembers, although of course, it’s nothing to be afraid of: just the realism of love in its varied forms.” -Mary F. Pols, TIME Magazine
“Blue Valentine leaves you with the shattering vision of its truest victim — the one who’ll someday look for safety in places it might not be. And the psychodrama will go on and on …” -David Edelstein, New York Magazine
“Agonizing to watch yet relentlessly compelling.” -David Germain, Associated Press
