Trailer: 'The Place Beyond the Pines'

“The Place Beyond the Pines” explores the unbreakable bond between fathers and sons, and is directed by Derek Cianfrance, helmer of “Blue Valentine.”

Luke (Ryan Gosling) is a high-wire motorcycle stunt performer who travels from town to town with the carnival. Passing through upstate New York, he tries to reconnect with a former lover, Romina (Eva Mendes), only to learn that she has given birth to their son Jason. Luke resolves to forsake life on the road and to provide for his newfound family, taking a job as car mechanic with Robin (Ben Mendelsohn). Robin soon discovers Luke’s special talents, and proposes to partner with him in a string of bank robberies, but it is only a matter of time before Luke runs up against the law — in the form of Avery Cross (Bradley Cooper). Avery is an ambitious rookie cop navigating a local police department ruled by the corrupt detective Deluca (Ray Liotta). When Avery, just beginning to balance his profession and his family life with wife Jennifer (Rose Byrne) and their infant son AJ, confronts Luke, the full consequences will reverberate into the next generation. It is then that the two sons, Jason (Dane DeHaan) and AJ (Emory Cohen), must face their fateful, shared legacy.

Opens March 29 in limited release. Read Variety’s review by Peter Debruge here.
