  • In Derek Cianfrance's THE PLACE BEYOND THE PINES, Ryan Gosling plays Luke, a drifter who makes a living doing motorcycle stunts in a traveling carnival. When he discovers that he has an infant son, he decides he wants to be able to take care of the child. He meets an ex-convict who knows how to rob banks, and learns from him how to pull off heists. His actions cause his life to become intertwined with a police officer named Avery (Bradley Cooper), who chases after him during a robbery. THE PLACE BEYOND THE PINES screened at the 2012 Toronto International Film Festival.

  • Critic Reviews
    "Gosling was superb as the explosive lover in the director's previous film, BLUE VALENTINE, and he's superb once again as Luke..."
    Wall Street Journal

    "[T]he movie is intimate in its telling....Moving, evocative and even a little hopeful.
    Los Angeles Times

    "THE PLACE BEYOND THE PINES has a lot to say about class, manhood and the curious operations of fate, themes that Mr. Cianfrance articulates with blunt conviction and, at times, impressive artistry."
    New York Times

    "A riveting crime thriller....This gorgeously photographed, wisely crafted and somber drama proceeds in unexpected directions, which makes it all the more engrossing."
    USA Today

    "[With] another riveting star turn from Ryan Gosling, who lends his soulful trick motorcycle rider turned outlaw antihero the minimalist magnetism of a young Steve McQueen."
    A.V. Club

    4 stars out of 5 -- "Like THE DEER HUNTER, this is a picture that glowers with somberness and maleness as it blends the intimate, epic and mythic over an expansive canvas."
    Total Film

    3 stars out of 4 -- "It's a beast of a movie, an emotional roller coaster....[Cianfrance] takes you on a hell of a ride."
    Rolling Stone

    4 stars out of 5 -- "[T]his is beautiful and bold filmmaking."
