The Place Beyond The Pines

Movie synopsis:

Luke is a high-wire, motorcycle performer who travels from town to town with the carnival. While passing through Schenectady, he tries to reconnect with a former lover Romina and learns that she has given birth to their son Jason in his absence. Luke decides to give up life on the road and provide for his newfound family by working as a car mechanic. Luke's boss notices his ambition and talents, and proposes to Luke that they work as partners pulling off a string of spectacular bank robberies. This puts Luke on the radar of ambitious rookie cop Avery Cross, who is also has an infant son and is dealing with the menacing and corrupt detective who runs the local police department. The consequences of Avery's confrontation with Luke will reverberate into the next generation when their two sons must face their fateful, shared legacy.

    I thought the movie was okay. The pacing was slow, they could have easily made this into a 1.5hr movie if they didn't pause or talk slowly throughout the film. Basically a three act film with a central theme that acts like bookends. The acting was pretty good, but it didn't help move this long and drawn-out film. Thanks everyone for coming out to the film and to Pickle Barrel after!

      You might be thinking of Cloud Atlas. ;) Place was just over 2 hours, otherwise we wouldn't have been able to get to Pickle Barrel before 10pm!

    Certainly not an upbeat movie, but I enjoyed it none the less if only for its well acted cast of characters and convoluted story line. Lots of conversation around this one. Good times!
