Free Screening: The Place Beyond the Pines
In his follow-up to Blue Valentine, writer/director Derek Cianfrance reunites with Ryan Gosling. Cianfrance continues his interest in depicting hard times and the withering loss of innocence that can come as a result. Gosling stars as a down-on-his-luck motorcycle stunt rider. Starting a family with Rosina (Eva Mendes) places a monetary strain on him that forces him to turn to crime. Ambitious rookie cop Avery (Bradley Cooper) has a momentary victory that’s tainted by the discovery of widespread corruption. For Cianfrance, so much of the world revolves around a moment of passion that can set various, seemingly unrelated lives on a collision course—and how the eagerness to make a better life can often lead to tragic turns.
