The Weinstein Company has moved up the release of Michelle Williams and Ryan Gosling’s anticipated film Blue Valentine to Wednesday, December 29th, giving the movie a two-day head start going into the holiday weekend.

According to the studio, the release date move was fueled by Blue Valentine’s impressive word of mouth and strong critical response, which has culminated in Golden Globe nods for both Michelle Williams and Ryan Gosling.

Blue Valentine centers on a contemporary married couple, charting their evolution over a span of years by cross-cutting between time periods.

The film was directed and co-written by Derek Cianfrance (Cagefighter), and also stars Faith Wladyka, John Doman, Mike Vogel, Marshall Johnson, Jen Jones, Maryann Plunkett, James Benatti, Barbara Troy, Carey Westbrook, Ben Shenkman, Eileen Rosen, Enid Graham, Ashley Gurnari, Jack Parshutich and Samii Ryan.
