A relationship is charted from its promising beginning to its sad collapse in this independent drama from Derek Cianfrance. Dean (Ryan Gosling – THE NOTEBOOK) meets Cindy (Michelle Williams – BROKEBACK MOUNTAIN) when they're in their late teens; he's working for a moving company, she's a college student, and they're both doing volunteer work at a home for the elderly. Cindy is dating Bobby (Mike Vogel), her boyfriend from high school, but as she gets to know Dean better, a mutual attraction grows between them. Years later, Dean and Cindy are married and have a daughter, Frankie (Faith Wladyka), but they're clearly not as happy as they once were; Dean loves his daughter but feels distant from his wife, they have to look after an elderly relative (John Doman), and when Cindy bumps into Bobby while running errands, it's clear he still holds a grudge against her. Dean and Cindy go away for a weekend together at a hotel, but it doesn't take long for them to realize that the magic isn't coming back.

Doesn't make the best use of talented acting
Soul searching and 'what does it all mean?' scenes aren't my thing. It's difficult to see it as anything more than everyday problems. Not my idea of entertainment, but I know this is very popular with a lot of you.
