The Place Beyond The Pines Synopsis
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).

Avery is an ambitious rookie cop navigating a local police department ruled by the menacingly corrupt detective Deluca (Ray Liotta). When Avery, just beginning to balance his profession and his family life with wife Jennifer (Rose Byrne) and their infant son AJ, confronts Luke, the full consequences 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.

The Best Movies Of 2013 So Far The Best Movies Of 2013 So Far
We're almost halfway through July-- I know, right?-- and just past the midway point of the year, which means that we're also almost done with summer movie season. The blockbusters are petering out, the dregs of summer are appearing on the horizon (sorry, R.I.P.D.) and the really great movies of fall feel so far away. So why not take this moment to look back over the year so far, and pick out the movies that we actually did love?

Operation Kino 110: Place Beyond The Pines Director Derek Cianfrance And His Secret Musical Dreams Operation Kino 110: Place Beyond The Pines Director Derek Cianfrance And His Secret Musical Dreams
This we are joined by Place Beyond the Pines director Derek Cianfrance to talk about his new film, his ongoing collaboration with Ryan Gosling, his dreams of making a musical and much more. We also talk about the Sundance series Top of the Lake, the Evil Dead remake, and whether or not we should be worried about Terrence Malick's sped-up production schedule. All that plus a lightning round inspired by Jane Campion's move to television.

Weekend Box Office: 42 Hits A Homerun, Scary Movie 5 Strikes Out Weekend Box Office: 42 Hits A Homerun, Scary Movie 5 Strikes Out
No one really wanted Scary Movie 5. Seven years ago audiences turned out to give Scary Movie 4, what easily should have been the last one, a decent send off with a very respectable $40 million opening and a domestic total of $90 million. But some folks don't know when to let it go and audiences showed just how last decade the franshise is.

What Made Ryan Gosling Feel Ashamed On The Set Of The Place Beyond The Pines? What Made Ryan Gosling Feel Ashamed On The Set Of The Place Beyond The Pines?
"I had this real sense of shame about it all, that I had blown it." That's a miserable feeling for any actor working in film, when there's no second performance to make it all better, and especially while actually making the movie. But Ryan Gosling's shame over the face tattoo he opted for in The Place Beyond the Pines actually wound up contributing to the role

You may still think of Eva Mendes as the woman from Hitch, or from the shampoo commercials, or from tabloid-ready relationships. But the actress who could easily spend a career coasting on her beauty has taken the last 4 years to make a series of risky and under seen films, from the gonzo Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call New Orleans with Werner Herzog to the intimate Last Night with Massy Tadjedin to the surreal French experiment Holy Motors with Leos Carax

The Place Beyond the Pines is being sold as a matchup between two of the most popular and well-regarded leading men working today, Bradley Cooper and Ryan Gosling. But what you might not know, thanks to his leading role in the film's final half-hour, is that Dane DeHaan plays just as large a role, and is rising so fast you'll know his name as well as Cooper's and Gosling's very soon

The Place Beyond The Pines Exclusive Art Debut The Place Beyond The Pines Exclusive Art Debut
Despite the images you may have seen of Ryan Gosling wearing a leather jacket and riding a motorcycle, The Place Beyond the Pines is not a fast-paced action drama crammed with car chases and witty quips. Yes, Gosling's character is a bank robber and stunt motorcycle driver, but he's also a man who's recently discovered he has a child, and who enters a life of crime to help support his newborn son

When it comes to action-filled crime dramas, Ryan Gosling is the go-to guy for bringing a hefty amount of critical opinions to projects. In the case of Nicolas Winding Refn’s simmering Drive, there was rarely a negative word spoken, while Ruben Fleischer’s flashy-but-empty Gangster Squad had a tougher time gaining approval from the masses. The trailer for his next film, The Place Beyond the Pines thankfully looks to be more Drive than Gangster

The Place Beyond the Pines stars Gosling as a motorcycle stunt rider who turns to robbing banks to support his girlfriend (Eva Mendes) and newborn son. While its premise shares surface similarities with Gosling's other recent controversial vehicle, Nicolas Winding Refn's Drive, this new feature has the added element of drama, as its hero hunted down by a rookie cop with big ambitions (Bradley Cooper).

Ryan Gosling Plans To Rob A Bank In New The Place Beyond The Pines Poster Ryan Gosling Plans To Rob A Bank In New The Place Beyond The Pines Poster
The last time that Ryan Gosling and director Derek Cianfrance teamed up, the star found himself being overweight, balding and stuck in a loveless marriage raising a kid that isn't his. But the director's new movie, The Place Beyond The Pines, is a much different kind of film than Blue Valentine and all you need to do is look at Gosling's bleach blonde hair, motorcycle and tear-drop tattoo to tell the difference.

As you can see, the movie stars Gosling, Bradley Cooper, Eva Mendes and Ray Liotta. And some fake looking arrow trees. What you can’t tell from this poster is that there are three storylines at play in Pines, from the down-on-his-luck drama of Gosling’s bank-robbing criminal to the crime-stopping heroics of Cooper’s up-and-coming New York officer.

Ryan Gosling Robs Banks, Rides Motorcycles In First Place Beyond The Pines Trailer Ryan Gosling Robs Banks, Rides Motorcycles In First Place Beyond The Pines Trailer
When I interviewed director Derek Cianfrance two years ago for his film Blue Valentine I took the opportunity to ask him about his next project, The Place Beyond The Pines. At the time he told me, that the movie was the story of fathers and sons, sins of the past, and motorcycles and guns. Watching the film's first trailer it would seem he was very accurate in his description.

The last time that writer/director Derek Cianfrance and Ryan Gosling got together the result was intense to say the least. Blue Valentine was not only a critical darling when it was released in 2010, but also an incredibly powerful emotional experience that kept affecting viewers long after the lights had come back on in the theater. Even before Blue Valentine was in limited release, however, it had been announced that the star and the director would be reuniting...

But before we see Gosling reteam with the Drive filmmaker, he has another reunion coming up.

Ray Liotta is like a scientist who discovered the cure for cancer but forgot to write down the formula, so he spends the rest of his life trying to recreate it. In 1990, the actor starred in what is widely considered to be one of the greatest gangster films of all time, Martin Scorsese's Goodfellas, but in the nearly 50 films since hasn't found a project even close to the same level of quality.

Gosling and Cooper could make one hell of an interesting pair. Gosling is all about furrowed brows and mannerisms and deep commitment in his acting, while Cooper seems to cruise through films on charisma and confidence. That contrast could make for a great cop and robber stand-off
