Now playing in limited release and expanding nationwide this weekend is one of the best films you’re going to see this year: director Derek Cianfrance’s The Place Beyond the Pines. The pic centers on a professional motorcycle rider turned bank robber (Ryan Gosling) and a rookie police officer (Bradley Cooper). Saying more would be detrimental to your enjoyment of the film, and I would encourage you to be very careful when reading about it. Pines also stars Eva Mendes, Bruce Greenwood, Dane DeHaan, Ray Liotta, Ben Mendelsohn, and Rose Byrne. For more on the film, here are images, clips, and everything we’ve previously posted on the film.
At the New York City press day, I got to speak with Dehaan. We talked about how he prepared to make sure his character looked real and authentic on screen, what the last year has been like for him having landed such high profile roles, the 3D Metallica movie (Metallica Through the Never), The Amazing Spider-Man 2 and his reaction to Chris Cooper playing his father, and a lot more.
