It's weird that in the film there is a scene where they mourn the loss of their pet dog, and after the film that's the same feeling I got back from this experience. Weird I know but it's true.
There are some parts of this movie that remind me of Once, another great love story. None more so than the scene in which Ryan Gosling's character is playing the Ukulele to Michelle Williams while singing "You Always Hurt the Ones You Love". Damn, that scene hit me harder than any other.
