Better late than never!

 If you’re a bird, I’m a bird.

Don’t ask me why I haven’t watched this before despite being a HUGE Gosling fan! I don’t have an answer!

Here’s the lines I found beautiful from the movie.

Noah: I am nothing special; just a common man with common thoughts, and I’ve led a common life. There are no monuments dedicated to me and my name will soon be forgotten. But in one respect I have succeeded as gloriously as anyone who’s ever lived: I’ve loved another with all my heart and soul; and to me, this has always been enough.

——

Duke: They didn’t agree on much. In fact they rarely agreed on anything. They fought all the time and they challenged each other everyday…
Young Noah: [Allie and Noah are fighting] Don’t push me!
[Allie pushes Noah anyway]
Duke: …But in spite their differences, they had one important thing in common, they were crazy about each other.

——

Young Noah: So it’s not gonna be easy. It’s going to be really hard; we’re gonna have to work at this everyday, but I want to do that because I want you. I want all of you, forever, everyday. You and me… everyday.

——

Young Noah: My Dearest Allie. I couldn’t sleep last night because I know that it’s over between us. I’m not bitter anymore, because I know that what we had was real. And if in some distant place in the future we see each other in our new lives, I’ll smile at you with joy and remember how we spent the summer beneath the trees, learning from each other and growing in love. The best love is the kind that awakens the soul and makes us reach for more, that plants a fire in our hearts and brings peace to our minds, and that’s what you’ve given me. That’s what I hope to give to you forever. I love you. I’ll be seeing you. Noah

Duke: She had come back into his life like a sudden flame, blazing and streaming into his heart. Noah stayed up all night contemplating the certain agony he knew would be his if he were to lose her twice.

——

Duke: I think our love can do anything we want it to.

Blue Valentine.

It’s a love story, a very real and heartbreaking story. I’m not going to give away the plot, but it’s a very simple and possible story line.

I love how the movie unfolds and scenes alternates so quickly, juxtaposing then and now.

Plus, there’s gosling. Boy, I could look at him all day.

I find myself having so many emotions within a short span of time. One minute, I’m hating both characters and the next, I feel sorry for them all over again and have a lump in my throat. It gets pretty intense. I might need a while to get over this film. So, please excuse me.

“I didn’t want to be somebody’s husband and I didn’t want to be somebody’s dad, that wasn’t my goal in life. But somehow it was. I work so I can do that.”

Catch this if you haven’t already. You might love it as much as I do.
