Story


The daring new movie from the director of Blue Valentine, "The Place Beyond the Pines" is a sweeping emotional drama powerfully exploring the unbreakable bond between fathers and sons.

Luke (Academy Award nominee Ryan Gosling) is in constant motion, a high-wire motorcycle stunt performer who travels from town to town with the carnival. Passing through Schenectady in upstate New York, he tries to reconnect with a former lover, Romina (Eva Mendes), only to learn that she has in his absence given birth to their son Jason. Luke resolves to forsake life on the road and to provide for his newfound family, taking a job as car mechanic with Robin (Ben Mendelsohn). Robin soon discovers Luke's special talents, and proposes to partner with him in a string of spectacular bank robberies. But it is only a matter of time before Luke will run up against the law - which comes in the form of Avery Cross (Bradley Cooper).

REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..this movie feels too loaded down with significance to simply be what it is..”
by Andrew O'Hehir [Salon.com]
“..the film is beautifully photographed by British cinematographer Sean Bobbitt (Shame), with exquisitely nuanced performances..”
by Rex Reed [New York Observer]
“..one-third wonderful, "The Place Beyond the Pines" weakens as it unfolds for lack of what makes the early part so good..”
by Joe Morgenstern [Wall Street Journal]
