You don't even have to know what this movie is about and you'd already be swept in by the coolness of the below picture. The Place Beyond the Pines stars Ryan Gosling (pictured below, if you were too enamored by the mystifying glance to perform basic facial recognition functions), Bradley Cooper (also suave), and Rose Byrne (the girl version of these people) in a story about a motorcycle stuntman who turns to crime (Gosling, who might be in danger of becoming victim of the most specific typecasting ever) to support his son financially.
Gosling's Blue Valentine director Derek Cianfrance is helming this project. Now, it's hard to really tell anything from a still photo...but I'm willing to go out on a limb (tree joke) and assume that this will be a beautiful frenzy of human desperation. Though, of course, I'm just a sap (tree joke) for Gosling—even if he might need to branch out (tree joke) from all these stuntman movies. But, with cast members like Rose (plant joke) Byrne and Emory (tree joke) Cohen, I really don't think I'm barking up the wrong movie.
