Passionate and intense, words to describe Derek Cianfrance. Same words I would use to define "Blue Valentine," the fantastic new movie starring Ryan Gosling and Michelle Williams about the degradation of love.
This movie will pierce your heart.
I love talking to directors of films, they're the authors of their projects, and Cianfrance gave a deeply insightful look into the world of romance, love, and acting!
Oh yeah, he mentioned that controversial NC-17 rating the film initially received from the MPAA.
In this interview, we talked about:
*** His interest in making "Blue Valentine"
*** Why he chose Ryan Gosling and Michelle Williams to star in the film
*** The controversial NC-17 rating that the film initially received. How did he fight it?
