I know this is short notice but if you're free Sunday I hope you'll join me in taking a chance on the new indie drama THE PLACE BEYOND THE PINES, which expands to semi-wide release today. Ryan Gosling and Bradley Cooper star as men on opposite sides of a series of high-profile bank robberies. Both new fathers, both are also tested by the lure of easy money and the sometimes destructive expectations of family and colleagues. Ray Liotta, Ben Mendohlson, and Eva Mendes lead the supporting cast.
The movie starts at 2:30 at the AMC Castleton Sq 14. Running time is 2 hours, 20 minutes and we can expect about 20 minutes of trailers. We'll go to the Panera (in the Marsh plaza at 82d and Allisonville) after the movie for discussion over coffee or supper, depending on your inclination.
Meetup time is 2:15 in the lobby. If you miss us before the show, we also gather in the lobby outside the auditorium before going on to the restaurant.
