After hearing rave reviews from film critics at the Cannes and Sundance Film festivals, regular ol’ movie fans are finally getting a glimpse at Ryan Gosling and Michelle Williams’ romantic drama, Blue Valentine.

The trailer shows the gorgeous actors falling in love in typical hipster fashion, with lots of flannel, ironic tap-dancing and at least one leisure suit. But the film isn’t all wine and roses; as the title indicates, times turn dark for the on-screen couple, who have said their sex scenes became “toxic” during shooting.

Those very intimate scenes have thrown a wrench into the film’s much-anticipated December release, as the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA) slapped it with a dreaded NC-17 rating. Now the filmmakers and the Weinstein Company may be scrambling to edit the movie into an acceptable R-rated cut.

The racy sex scenes are nowhere to be found in the trailer seen here:
