The Place Beyond the Pines


The Place Beyond the Pines


"If you ride like lightning you're gonna crash like thunder..."

Ryan Gosling's back with another moody thriller that could rival the excellent Drive. Reunited with director Derek Cianfrance (Blue Valentine) the Gangster Squad star plays an ex-con with a 'particular skill set' who quits his job as a motorbike stunt rider on a wall of death when he's drawn back into the underworld to support his family. On a collision course with Bradley Cooper's cop this looks like it's gonna be an intense ride...

Here's the lowdown:

A mysterious and mythical motorcycle racer, Luke, (Gosling) drives out of a traveling carnival globe of death and whizzes through the backstreets of Schenectady, New York, desperately trying to connect with a former lover, Romina, (Eva Mendes) who recently and secretly gave birth to the stunt rider's son. In an attempt to provide for his new family, Luke quits the carnival life and commits a series of bank robberies aided by his superior riding ability. The stakes rise as Luke is put on a collision course with an ambitious police officer, Avery Cross, (Cooper) looking to quickly move up the ranks in a police department riddled with corruption. The sweeping drama unfolds over fifteen years as the sins of the past haunt the present day lives of two high school boys wrestling with the legacy they've inherited. The only refuge is found in the place beyond the pines...

The Place Beyond the Pines is in UK cinemas April 12th.
