The Place Beyond the Pines (2012)

From the director of Blue Valentine

A mysterious and mythical motorcycle racer, Luke, (Ryan 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, (Bradley 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 days lives of two high school boys wrestling with the legacy they’ve inherited. The only refuge is found in the place beyond the pines.

Reviews

“Cooper, coming off an Oscar nod for his unbalanced guy in “Silver Linings Playbook,” pushes Avery’s angst a little too hard, but it’s not enough to ruin the meditative mood.”
Betsy Sharkey, Los Angeles Times

“Your attention is especially rewarded by the work of Mr. Gosling and Mr. Cooper, who offer contrasting studies in tragic, shortsighted masculine intensity […] Mr. Cooper, once again showing himself to be a restless and resourceful talent, plays Avery as a handsome, charming winner who is nonetheless very difficult to like.”
A.O. Scott, New York Times

Triva

• Director Derek Cianfrance claims that he would not have made the movie without Bradley cast as Avery Cross. In fact, he drove 5 hours to Toronto to meet with Cooper in person to convince him to take the role. Cianfrance says he did write the role for Cooper – “a guy who’s paraded around as a hero but inside feels corrupted.”
