The devastating but beautiful love/breakup story mashup "Blue Valentine" has taken a long time to come to fruition. When we recently sat down with star Michelle Williams, who gives an award-worthy performance in the film, she spoke of her passion for the project, and how she wanted to make it for more than six years after reading the script by co-writer and director Derek Cianfrance (two other writers are credited, Joey Curtis and Cami Delavigne). But Cianfrance had other plans once shooting began.

So much for all those conversations Playlist writer Drew Taylor just had with Derek Cianfrance, Ryan Gosling and Michelle Williams about the dreaded NC-17 rating their indie drama, "Blue Valentine," received earlier this year, which threatened to ruin the film's very viable Oscar chances and perhaps more importantly the opportunity to be seen by wider audiences under 17 (we hear teenagers like both Gosling and Williams, but hey, we could be wrong).
