The Place Beyond the Pines (2012)

Ryan Gosling robs banks so he can provide for his knocked up girlfriend.

More info @ IMDB
  • the movie has this old authentic feel to it, i'm not sure how to describe it. It lacks the "unrealism" of most Hollywood movies.

  • I think Gosling found his groove in these types of "artistic" movies. (I don't know how else to describe it.)

  • Excellent story. It starts off a bit slow but if you keep watching, it gets way better and you see how one thing leads to another. This is one of the reasons I like this movie.

  • Eva Mendes is not that attractive IMO

  • good acting by everyone

in a nutshell

starts off good, loses steam but then gets good again for an excellent finish

Birthdays are good for you. Statistics show that the people who have the most live the longest.
