We are just about 2 months away from the theatrical release of Ryan Gosling’s next film The Place Beyond the Pines which, as you may know, is the movie that brought together romantically Gosling with his ladylove Eva Mendes. Even after reading the film synopsis below, I’m not entirely sure that I know what is going on … but, really, who cares? Ryan Gosling rides a motorcycle, holds a baby … what’s not to love? Check out the just released new movie poster for The Place Beyond the Pines and make your plans to see this movie when it opens on March 29.
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).
So Ryan plays an ex-stuntman turned bank robbing babydaddy on the run from the law. Got it. This movie had me from the start … merely because it stars Ryan Gosling so … I’m in. You?
