If there’s one film to look forward to in 2013, The Place Beyond the Pines is it.
Why? Well first, the cast is ridiculously sexy. A bleached-blonde, tatted up Ryan Gosling stars in the film with his real-life girlfriend Eva Mendes and the man who beat him out for People’s "Sexiest Man Alive" title last year, Bradley Cooper.
The cast is just the beginning of why this film could be a major hit. Premiering earlier this year at the Toronto International Film Festival, The Place Beyond the Pines tells the story of a very heavily tattooed guy (Ryan) who finds out he has a son he never knew about with an old lover (Eva). Looking to make ends meet, he turns into a motorcycle-riding bank robber, with a newly-recruited police officer (Bradley) sent after him to bring him to justice.
Throw in Ray Liotta as Bradley’s intense colleague and the director of Blue Valentine (showcasing one of Ryan's strongest performances), and you’ve got a crime drama that will certainly put you on the edge of your seat. (Or at least have you drooling over Ryan and Bradley on the same screen together.)
The Place Beyond the Pines hits theaters March 29th, 2013. Let the countdown begin!
