Crime drama
Derek Cianfrance follows up his brilliant Blue Valentine with a film bigger in scope but still starring Ryan Gosling. Gosling plays Luke, a motorcycle stunt guy who finds out he has a kid and wants to be a part of his life. Problem is, the kid is the product of a one-night stand, and the mom (Eva Mendes) has moved on. Luke resorts to robbing banks, which culminates in a meeting with a rookie cop played by Bradley Cooper. The film then focuses on Cooper’s character for a segment before dealing with Luke and Avery’s kids (played by Dane DeHaan and Emory Cohen) when they are teens. The movie is long, but never boring, and it crackles most when Gosling is on screen. It’s all about the sins of the fathers, and Cianfrance presents it in a way that resonates. Also stars Ray Liotta and Ben Mendelsohn.

Inlander To the Pines Director Derek Cianfrance proves something with his newest film: he is great at making you feel terrible. His previous movie, Blue Valentine, an instant cult classic starring Ryan Gosling and Michelle by Joseph Haeger 05/22/2013
Charleston City Paper The Place Beyond the Pines doesn't live up to its ambition The Place Beyond the Pines opens with Ryan Gosling, but it doesn't end with him. By the time the credits roll — two hours and 20 minutes later — we've cycled through three sets of main characters, and the plot has advanced forward 15 years. by Jake Mulligan 04/10/2013
