'The Place beyond the Pines' @ The Dukes of Yorks

For all Ryan Gosling fans out there.....The ingredients are all those of a classic thriller – robbery, high-speed chases, double- crossing – but Cianfrance brings something deeper to this with his flair for truly beautiful, dreamlike visuals and atmospheric soundtrack choices, and his way of showing the drama that can unfold in the relationship between fathers and sons. He’s aided by a spectacular cast, in particular his leading male trio of Gosling, Cooper and Dane DeHaan, playing an isolated teen whose life is changed by the clash between Luke and Avery.

THE PLACE BEYOND THE PINES is a film that starts deliberately small and then just keeps on growing into an epic tale that spans many years and multiple lives. It’s the work of a director still at the beginning of what promises to be a very exciting career indeed.

    Hi! I was there but I could not find you. I am new and I arrived a bit late. Pity.
    At the beginning of the movie I ws a bit bored, but then I felt more and more involved. I loved the Sound track.
    Interesting plot and nice shooting. The photography was not particularly touching, in my view.
    Hope to see you soon ( next time I will get better organised).

    I really like the film once I understood it was really 3 stories. It was maybe a little long but I was enjoying the beautiful cinematography too much to care. Ryan Gosling was fabulous as always! Also very impressed by the kid who played his teenage son. Ray Liota was perfect as the dirty cop, I could feel the menace burning off the screen even in the back row!!! Fab night, nice chatting with the great people new and 'old'!

    Got to be honest, I was bored. Great turn out though, maybe we should do more Saturday nights.

    ps Do we have to book/buy tickets beforehand?

    April 10, 2013

    • colin p.

      Yes, see you there.

    Hi Andy, I would always book my ticket in advance and and the file of yorks, the seats aren't numbered for the majority of the shows so we can usually all sit together on the night. I think we will all meet across the riad in circus circus for a drink before as there is more room there than in the upstairs bar at the dukes. See you there

    I had said that I wasn't going to make this, but having read the reviews and the plot I've changed my mind Please make sure you send me home straight after the film :-)
