The time spent ... bringing to life these characters enabled the actors to reach a level of naturalism that can't be achieved by conventional role casting. Cianfrance, Gosling and Williams literally created a family, then let it self-destruct.
It's this slow grinding down of the gears of marriage that Cianfrance brings so realistically to the big screen, aided by the heartfelt performances of Gosling and Williams that'll surely garner recognition come Oscar time.
