Focus Features has released a new clip from Derek Cianfrance’s drama The Place Beyond the Pines.  The film centers on a generational conflict involving two fathers: one a pro-motorcycle rider and bank robber (Ryan Gosling) and a rookie cop on the rise (Bradley Cooper).  Eva Mendes co-stars as the girlfriend of Gosling’s character.  As I’ve said before, you want to try and keep yourself in the dark as much as possible on this flick, and I would encourage you to be very careful when reading about it.  I saw the movie at TIFF, and it has a good chance of being on my Top 10 films of 2013.

Hit the jump to check out the clip.  The Place Beyond the Pines opens in limited release on March 29th.  The film has also set up a Tumblr, which you can check out here.

[Spoiler warning: This clip strongly hints at important events that take place earlier in the film.]

Here’s the official synopsis for The Place Beyond the Pines:

The daring new movie from the director of Blue Valentine, The Place Beyond the Pines is a sweeping emotional drama powerfully exploring the unbreakable bond between fathers and sons.

Luke (Academy Award nominee Ryan Gosling) is a high-wire motorcycle stunt performer who travels with the carnival from town to town. While passing through Schenectady in upstate New York, he tries to reconnect with a former lover, Romina (Eva Mendes), only to learn that she has given birth to their son Jason in his absence. Luke decides to give up life on the road to try and provide for his newfound family by taking a job as a car mechanic. Noticing Luke’s ambition and talents, his employer Robin (Ben Mendelsohn) proposes to partner with Luke in a string of spectacular bank robberies – which will place Luke on the radar of ambitious rookie cop Avery Cross (Academy Award nominee Bradley Cooper).

Avery, who has to navigate a local police department ruled by the menacing and corrupt detective Deluca (Ray Liotta), is also struggling to balance his professional life with his family life, which includes his wife Jennifer (Rose Byrne) and their infant son AJ. The consequences of Avery’s confrontation with Luke will reverberate into the next generation. It is then that the two sons, Jason (Dane DeHaan) and AJ (Emory Cohen), must face their fateful, shared legacy.
