Thoughtful human melodrama. Believable. See it.

When I saw the trailer, I thought "ok, maybe, looks like one to see." I had the chance to watch "The Place Beyond the Pines" last night; and I'm glad I did! Very interesting story, with believable characters, in believable situations! Actions can have consequences, either good or bad, and it can affect others, now or later. I want to talk about this in more detail - but don't want to spoil anything to those deciding weather to see this film. So, I'll leave it to that. I went to a smaller cinema in a smaller auditorium to see it; and wow, it was filled with people!

Garbage!!!!

Such a waste of a film in money and talent.. Did not care for the characters to show you how bad this film is. Terrible Directing, Producing and dialogue. I agree 100% with Chicago Sun TImes review. Please read before u see this. Love the actors but they could not save this film..

Beautifully Sad

The movie was perfectly pensive, introspective, and so sad. It shows different perspectives on how our choices shape us, and the next generation. The acting was incredible, especially Brady Cooper's performance. Wow. Not a need-to-see-at-the-theatre movie, but the music at that volume/proximity was moving. Overall a beautifully sad film.

I went to this movie because I am a Ryan Gosling fan. I like the type of movie too. The whole project was well executed. All of the actors were superb.

Expectation was too high

Nothing special about this movie, the relatively high rating on IMDB is just because the ending was somewhat unpredictable. But the story line is too fragmented. You have to follow different roles and learn their stories and in the end you don't know you are on who's side of the story. Not much to be remembered of.
