New Clip & Images from THE PLACE BEYOND THE PINES Starring Ryan Gosling
We’re just a couple of weeks away from the release of the Ryan Gosling led crime drama The Place Beyond the Pines. With that, we’ve seen a bevy of clips and images. The Derek Cianfrance helmed film made its premier back at TIFF in September 2012, where it received rave reviews – with many outlets predicting that it will finish as one of the top films of 2013. The story centers on Luke (Gosling), a motorcycle stunt performer who learns that his former lover, Romina (Mendes), had given birth to his son during his absence. Luke turns to crime in order to provide for his family, which subsequently runs him into ambitious rookie cop Avery Cross (Cooper). The new clip features an encounter between Luke and Romina, and I absolutely adore the change in score towards the end of the clip. Along with the clip are a handful of new images. Hit the jump to check it out.
The Place Beyond the Pines stars Ryan Gosling, Eva Mendes, Bradley Cooper, Ray Liotta, Robert Clohessy, Rose Byrne, Dane DeHaan, and Bruce Greenwood and will hit theaters in a limited release on March 29th, 2013.
“Want me to give you a ride?”
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 a high-wire motorcycle stunt performer who travels with the carnival from town to town. While passing through Schenectady in upstate New York, he tries to reconnect with a former lover, Romina (Eva Mendes), only to learn that she has given birth to their son Jason in his absence. Luke decides to give up life on the road to try and provide for his newfound family by taking a job as a car mechanic. Noticing Luke’s ambition and talents, his employer Robin (Ben Mendelsohn) proposes to partner with Luke in a string of spectacular bank robberies – which will place Luke on the radar of ambitious rookie cop Avery Cross (Academy Award nominee Bradley Cooper).
Avery, who has to navigate a local police department ruled by the menacing and corrupt detective Deluca (Ray Liotta), is also struggling to balance his professional life with his family life, which includes his wife Jennifer (Rose Byrne) and their infant son AJ. The consequences of Avery’s confrontation with Luke will reverberate into the next generation. It is then that the two sons, Jason (Dane DeHaan) and AJ (Emory Cohen), must face their fateful, shared legacy.
