The Place Be­yond The Pines

The Gold Coast Bulletin - Play Magazine - - SHOWS -

A mo­tor­cy­cle stunt­man (Ryan Gosling) com­mits a petty crime to sup­port his kid, only to be hounded for years af­ter by an overzeal­ous cop (Bradley Cooper) in this verite noir thriller. Also stars Eva Men­des. They say: One of the best adult dra­mas in years is the con­sen­sus among top-tier crit­ics, who sin­gle out the film’s cast, deftly struc­tured script (the story is told in two time­lines) and nu­mer­ous emo­tional thumps. Gosling’s pow­er­ful per­for­mance as com­bines a danger­ous un­pre­dictabil­ity along­side a sweet fatherly de­vo­tion. Wesay: Re­unit­ing Gosling with his Blue Valen­tine di­rec­tor Derek Cian­france, The Place Be­yond the Pines’ novel-like struc­ture and well­drawn char­ac­ters should re­mind au­di­ences how far dra­matic cin­ema has fallen and how far high-end tele­vi­sion has risen to take its place. Run­ning time 140 min­utes. Screens at Pa­cific Fair, Nerang, The Arts Cen­tre Gold Coast, Nerang, Har­bour Town, Tweed City, Yatala Drive In.
