The Place Beyond the Pines (2013)

8 May

If you are wondering what the best movie in theaters is right now, I would recommend Place Beyond the Pines. The film is really a compilation of three mini-stories that cover over 15 years of father-son relationships. Bradley Cooper is great. Ryan Gosling might be even better. Sometimes the movie’s ending feels like it’s never going to come, but I was so absorbed in the story I didn’t want it it to. When the credits finally do roll up, I felt like I had taken an emotional roller coaster ride that lasts over 2 hours. This film is epic.

8/10 stars
