>Ryan Gosling and Michelle Williams spent a month together in a rented house to age themselves in preparation for the 'present' scenes. They spent a lot of their time grocery shopping, cooking dinner and learning to pick fights with each other.
>The inspiration for the film was the divorce of Derek Cianfrance's parents when he was 20.
>When filming the argument scenes, Derek Cianfrance gave instructions to Michelle Williams and Ryan Gosling individually without the knowledge of the other in order to create more tension between Dean and Cindy.
>Just before shooting began, director Derek Cianfrance told Williams that he was no longer interested in sticking to the script, and that he wanted Williams and co-star Ryan Gosling to improvise their scenes.
>Derek Cianfrance spent 12 years making the movie. During that process, Cianfrance said that he wrote about 67 drafts
>The scene when Dean threatens to jump off the bridge while climbing the chain fence was not in the script. Ryan Gosling had to seek a way to let Michelle Williams' character to reveal her pregnancy.
Is there a more based, emotionally wrecking film about love?
>tfw Goose has finally trickled down to reddit after years as the REAL HUMAN BEAN of /tv/
That would probably be >>64695930 or Cumberbatch or anyone who plays a superhero.
Gosling is actually taking some years between his movies, did two very artsy ones with Refn and didn't wanna be Green Lantern nor Batman. He's one of the least Reddit actors out there.
this movie was interesting because when I watched it the first time I immediately sided with goose and thought the wife was a raging traitorous cunt but then when I rewatched a few months later I could kind of see her side of things or at least recognized how they both were wrong in different ways.
Same. I mean don't get me wrong, his wife was could as fuck and she was very promiscuous and didn't seem like a reliable emotional partner, but she just had so much resentment for him. That kind of shit doesn't get wiped off. He was kind of a bum, in a charming way, but a bum.
She probably thought it was gonna get better once they got older or didn't really think about it, but he never got any higher in life than that.
>implying Goose hasn't been mainstream since The Notebook
a man is happy after a woman acknowledges him and accepts that he ends up supporting a her in need of a sex toy and a wallet for her and her child. yes sure great story.
