“The Place Beyond The Pines” spans over 15 years.  By the end of the picture, you feel you have watched a trilogy. The movie takes you on an emotional ride through the lives of these characters. Gosling shines with his portrayal of a father who struggles to provide for his son. The first act mainly focuses on Gosling’s character who finds out he has a son and has to provide for him, which he does by robbing banks.

 

The second act of the film follows a police officer played by Bradley Cooper, as he tries to cope with an incident and try to be the best cop he can be. The third act takes place 15 years later focusing on Gosling’s son played by Dane Dehaan and Cooper’s son played by Emory Cohen.

 

“The Place Beyond The Pines” is currently playing at two theaters in the area: The Arclight Cinemas on Sunset and The Landmark in West Los Angeles. The picture has already grossed about $270,184 and is playing in only four theaters nationwide. The movie will open an additional 21 screens by the end of the week and will open nationwide in 250 movie theatres on April 12.
