Opening this weekend in New York and Los Angeles 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’s images, clips, and everything we’ve previously posted on the film.

At the recent New York City press day, I got to speak with Cianfrance.  We talked about what it’s been like waiting for the film to come out after premiering at Toronto International Film Festival, if he made any changes, why he wanted to go with Focus Features, deleted scenes, and more.  Hit the jump to watch.

Finally, The Place Beyond the Pines will be expanding into more theaters in April, so if you don’t live in NYC or L.A., you’ll still be able to see the film in the near future.
