"In this movie, Michelle Williams takes a stand against something -- and it's her own stagnation. So I really hate it when people say she's not likable, because to me, she's the hero. She could have been more likable, I guess, if she were satisfied with just being a wife or a mother, but she needs more out of her life. She needs to grow. She needs to become. And those are heroic goals," he says.
*from the director of Blue Valentine
CINTRA: I HATE TO DISAGREE WITH THE DIRECTOR, but I dont think so. If she wants to take a stand against something, be it with herself, not with her bloody great husband. HE HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH HER SHITTY LIFE!
PERICLES: She was stuck in a poor relationship. Her challenge was getting out of her marriage and discover what she really needs. Maybe the love of someone is not all we need...
CINTRA: Surely not. but she could do it with a little more respect towards people's feelings, you know? no matter how many reasons she had, nobody has nothing to do with that.
PERICLES: You know... There was no way. With the end, doesn't matter how, who loves always suffer!
CINTRA: Love sucks!
