THE PLACE BE­YOND THE PINES Di­rected by Derek Cian­france. Star­ring Ryan Gosling, Eva Men­des, Bradley Cooper

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - FILM - DC

Don’t be fooled by the iconic spec­ta­cle of per­ox­ide Gosling on a mo­tor­bike: the sec­ond col­lab­o­ra­tion be­tween di­rec­tor Cian­france and the ac­tor is no angsty ac­tioner but a trip­tych. Gosling’s lost boy carny ex­its af­ter the first chap­ter, leav­ing Cooper’s cop to hold the fort. Two brighter, younger things , in turn, su­per­sede Cooper as the cen­tral fo­cus. Pic­ture the time-lapse drama of Blue Valen­tine on a grander, in­ter­gen­er­a­tional scale. 15A cert, lim re­lease, 140 min
