Aesthetic Appeal- 🙂 🙂 Everything director Derek Cianfrance did in this movie compliments the emotion of the story. Some scenes looked to be shot with a simple handheld camera but this actually added to the real feel and raw emotion of the film.


Story- 🙂 🙂 It’s examines the dynamic of a contemporary relationship from it’s beautiful conception to its devastating conclusion. It may be the saddest movie ever and is jokingly referred to as the robot test because it’s almost impossible to restrain from crying during the film.


Acting- 🙂 🙂 Ryan Gosling and Michelle Williams give the most emotionally naked performances that the silver screen has ever seen. As emotionally driving as Ryan Goslings performance was in the Notebook he far surpasses anything we have seen from him before. I’d go as far to say that it was the rawest and most honest performance I’ve ever witnessed.


In the end this may be the only movie I ever rate with a perfect score. So please go see it at least once and although it doesn’t have your typical happy ending it will completely satisfy you in every way.
