Ryan Gosling can do no wrong at the moment: with his directorial debut How To Catch A Monster shaping up nicely, and his second collaboration with director Nicolas Winding Refn, Only God Forgives, gearing up for its release, you’d think there just couldn’t be anything else to get excited about.
Well there is, a new crime thriller directed by Derek Cianfrance. It would seem directors like to work with Gosling more than once as not only has Refn worked with Gosling twice, but The Place Beyond the Pines will be Gosling and Cianfrance’s second film together after Blue Velvet.
The Place Beyond the Pines is a film about two fathers: one a thief and stunt bike driver, the other is an honest cop and naturally the two characters cross paths. Word is this film is quite brilliant, but the less you know about it the better, so I will simply share the trailer and synopsis, and that will be enough to have you hooked on this awesome looking film.
Directed by Derek Cianfrance, The Place Beyond the Pines stars Ryan Gosling and Bradley Cooper, with support from Eva Mendes, Ray Liotta, Rose Byrne, Dane DeHaan, Bruce Greenwood and Ben Mendelsohn.
The film arrives in UK cinemas 12th April 2013.
Luke (Ryan Gosling) is a professional motorcycle rider who turns to bank robberies to support his newborn son. But when he crosses paths with a rookie police officer (Bradley Cooper), their violent confrontation spirals into a tense generational feud. The Place Beyond the Pines is a rich dramatic thriller, tracing the intersecting lives of fathers and sons, cops and robbers, heroes and villains.
