Focus Features has released a new clip from director Derek Cianfrance’s upcoming drama The Place Beyond The Pines. The film centers around Luke (Ryan Gosling), a motorcycle stunt driver who commits a crime to support his infant child and baby mama (Eva Mendes) which puts him on a collision course with a rookie cop (Bradley Cooper) that will have a devastating effect on both their families for years to come.
This movie looks awesome and is currently sporting a 100% on rottentomatoes. I’ve read a few reviews and they suggest it could be one of the best movies of 2013. The clip is kinda spoiler-ish and alludes to an event earlier in the film; consider yourself warned. The film also set up a site on tumblr, which you can see here.
The cast also includes Ray Liotta, Rose Byrne, Mahershala Ali, Dane DeHaan, Emory Cohen and Ben Mendelsohn.
The Place Beyond the Pines is the new movie from the director of Blue Valentine. Luke (Ryan Gosling) is a motorcycle performer. While passing through Schenectady, NY, he learns that a former lover, Romina (Eva Mendes), has given birth to their son Jason. Luke decides to give up life on the road to try and provide for his newfound family. His employer Robin (Ben Mendelsohn) proposes to partner in a string of bank robberies – which will place Luke on the radar of ambitious rookie cop Avery Cross (Bradley Cooper). Avery, who has to navigate a police department ruled by corrupt detective Deluca (Ray Liotta), is also struggling to balance life with his wife Jennifer (Rose Byrne) and their infant son AJ. The consequences of Avery’s confrontation with Luke reverberate into the next generation, when the two sons, Jason (Dane DeHaan) and AJ (Emory Cohen), must face their fateful, shared legacy.
