Ryan Gosling, Bradley Cooper and Eva Mendes star in epic multi-generational crime drama from director Derek Cianfrance (Blue Valentine), about a motorcycle stunt rider whose moonlighting a bank robber brings him into conflict with an ambitious young cop. Slyly echoing his seductive turn in Drive, Gosling plays Luke, a motorcycle stunt rider and habitual loner who works for a travelling carnival, roaming from town to town. After reuniting with his sometime girlfriend Romina (Eva Mendes), Luke discovers that he has fathered a son. Determined to meet his responsibility but unable to support a family, Luke opts to start robbing banks. On his getaway motorcycle, Luke is magnificent: skilled, daring, reckless and macho. But on one heist he draws the pursuit of rookie cop Avery (Bradley Cooper). It proves a fateful confrontation. "The Place Beyond the Pines" works beautifully as a crime thriller, but Cianfrance goes further. As the story proceeds and turns surprising corners, it evolves into a study of vengeance, memory and fate.
