THE PLACE BEYOND THE PINES

Available for digital download – August 2nd 2013
Out On BLU-RAY & DVD – August 12th 2013

STUDIOCANAL are delighted to announce the Home Entertainment release of the critically acclaimed THE PLACE BEYOND THE PINES. Derek Cianfrance unites two of Hollywood’s hottest properties; Ryan Gosling (Drive, Gangster Squad) and Bradley Cooper (The Hangover, Silver Linings Playbook) in an epic crime thriller of damaged sons and failing fathers. THE PLACE BEYOND THE PINES follows four men – over two generations – as they fight to overcome a legacy of blood.

A mysterious and mythical motorcycle racer, Luke, (Ryan Gosling) drives out of a traveling carnival “globe of death” and whizzes through the backstreets of Schenectady, New York— where a chance encounter reconnects him with a former lover, Romina, (Eva Mendes) who he learns has recently and secretly given birth to their son. In an attempt to provide for his new family, Luke quits the carnival life and takes a job as a car mechanic with Robin (Ben Mendlesohn, Animal Kingdom, The Dark Knight Rises). Robin soon discovers Luke’s special talents and proposes to partner with him on a series of spectacular bank robberies. The stakes rise as his criminal life unites his path with that of idealistic young cop, Avery Cross, (Bradley Cooper) looking to quickly move up the ranks in a police department riddled with corruption, and the course of their lives is altered irrevocably. The sweeping action unfolds over fifteen years as the sins of the past haunt the present days lives of their two sons (rising stars Emory Cohen and Dane Dehaan – soon to be seen in The Amazing Spiderman 2) wrestling with the legacy they’ve inherited. The only refuge is found in the place beyond the pines.

Visually stunning with breathtaking cinematography, Derek Cianfrance delivers a Godfather-like focus on families and their vicious cycles, as he explores how the choices we make echo throughout generations. Featuring career-best performances from Gosling and Cooper, THE PLACE BEYOND THE PINES is one of the most ambitious and accomplished films of the year.

Alex Moss’ obsession with film began the moment he witnessed the Alien burst forth from John Hurt’s stomach. It was perhaps ill-advised to witness this aged 6 but much like the beast within Hurt, he became infected by a parasite called ‘Movies’. Rarely away from his computer or a big screen, as he muses on Cinematic Deities, Alex is “more machine now than man. His mind is twisted and evil”. Email: alex.moss@filmjuice.com
