I’m thinking a Ryan Gosling marathon would go like this: First, “The Notebook,” where he’s young and impressionable, happy with Rachel McAdams. But then, he strays, and “Blue Valentine” happens! Gets with Michelle Williams and his life derails. She leaves him, he takes a job as a getaway driver and further explores his dark side, later getting with Kirsten Dunst for that movie. He kills her. Feeling empty, he turns to the life of a playboy for “Crazy, Stupid Love” and meets Emma Stone. Reforms. Everyone’s happy, except Rachel McAdams, who dies alone with Alzheimer’s.
Yes, it took 3 text messages, and yes, this movie marathon will happen.
