Blue Valentine

I was curious to see this movie, being it was filmed around the area in which I live in Northeast Pennsylvania. A few of the places were recognizable in the movie - the COLTS bus, the Albright Memorial Library in Scranton, the liquor store in Chinchilla, the bridal store in Honesdale.

This was a very erotic and sort of unsettling for me to watch at times. The young married couple Dean and Cindy met by chance and fell deeply in love in just a few weeks. Dean was a young high- school dropout, who paints houses and Cindy who is a nurse.

He married her when she found out that she was pregnant by another boyfriend, but he didn't care. They had a daughter whom he loved very much.

After a few years the marriage began to crumble. She asked him for a divorce after a huge fight and him showing up drunk at her workplace.

He ends up walking away, after trying to persuade her not to break up the family, with Cindy grabbing her daughter. It is a highly emotional film.
