The Mountain Between Us: 5 other Romantic Dramas to enjoy

Grant Webb presents five classic romance films to seek out after watching The Mountain Between Us...

Blue Valentine (2010)

Shot on 16mm film and a Red One digital camera to represent two different timelines, director Derek Cianfrance structures Blue Valentine to examine the decay of Cindy and Dean’s (played by Michelle Williams and Ryan Gosling respectively) relationship over the course of five years, from its hopeful start all the way to its bitter and uncomfortable end.

Blue Valentine isn’t an easy watch, but it’s an honest film that explores what it means to fall out of love with someone by finding out what made you fall in love with them in the first place. Michelle Williams got a deserved Best Actress Oscar nomination for her role as Cindy which cemented her status as one of the finest actresses of this generation alongside Ryan Gosling who proved he wasn’t just the pretty boy from The Notebook.
