Steve Carrel, Ryan Gosling, Emma Stone and Julianne Moore are the stars of this drama/ romance / comedy. A story about a man whose world is altered after what should have been a romantic dinner date with his wife turns into something else.
Directed by Glenn Ficarra and John Requa, I tuned in because of Carell and Moore’s reputations and found myself pleasantly surprised. A big highlight is the scene with the valedictorian speech. That and Gosling’s character, Jacob’s fashion sense.
Watch it for a reminder that humour is tragedy plus time. You’ll go through some emotions but you will certainly laugh as well.
Along with The Notebook (2004) this movie is without a doubt responsible for a good number of Ryan Gosling crushes.
