Storyline

Dean Pereira and Cindy Heller Pereira are a young, working class married couple - Dean currently working as a painter, and Cindy working as a nurse in a medical clinic - with a young daughter named Frankie. Despite their relatively tender ages, they are both ravaged by the life they've eked out together and by the experiences they've had leading into their marriage. Dean, a high school drop out, comes from a broken home, where he never really had a mother figure. He never saw himself getting married or having a family despite falling in love at first sight with Cindy. He doesn't have any professional ambition beyond his current work - which he enjoys since he feels he can knock off a beer at 8 o'clock in the morning without it affecting his work - although Cindy believes he has so much more potential in life. Cindy also comes from a dysfunctional family, with her own mother and father not setting an example of a harmonious married or family life. One of her previous serious ... Written by Huggo

I became a fan of Ryan Gosling after watching this movie.
12 October 2012 | by krishna chaitanyaSee all my reviews

Where can I start about this movie? You want me to start about the great performances by the actors? or the skillful directing? or the masterful writing?

I was dumbfounded right after watching this movie. In fact I wondered, why didn't Ryan gosling get nominated for the Oscar but Michelle Williams did.

While watching this movie, I didn't get entertained but I savored the reality which I was viewing on the screen. I'm fully moved. What I loved most in this movie is the character Dean neither raises his voice nor his hand at his wife but respects her with profound sincerity. He makes mistakes but never let go of his family.

The director portrayed beautifully about the most common problems which arise between a man and wife and how they overcome those problems. Apart from this, I totally loved the chemistry between Dean and Cindy before marriage. This movie includes some sweet moments and some bitter moments as well. I'm 23 and single and If I ever become a husband then I wanna be like Dean(The character in this movie).
