The Place Beyond The Pines

The Place Beyond The Pines(2013)

This bold and ambitious drama about moral compromise and the legacies we leave is unflinchingly beautiful: and by "beautiful," I mean ugly, gritty, flawed, and heart-wrenching.
Ryan Gosling is the heart of "The Place Beyond the Pines," a captivating, bold, and moving story that grabs you and doesn't let go. I will admit the film is a bit loosely-paced and demands only the most patient of viewers, but this incredible epic about the sins of the father is thematically rich and nothing short of brilliant.

9/10
