terrysigns4u is absolutely correct! The acting is done very well, but the story is so disconnected. You keep waiting for something to build after one event, but then it jumps off to a rabbit trail that doesn't resolve anything. Considering the cast, this was a HUGE disappointment.

A Place at the Oscars

By filmfanny

The flaws in this movie are forgivable because the overall entertainment value is so profound. It is a movie for those of us who love watching great themes unfold. The elements for that include a meaningful plot, characters we can care about, and stunning visuals. Wow. The Place Beyond the Pines delivers. The cameral obviously loves Ryan Gosling. He looks incredible from any angle. The opening shot is terrific, and the cycle scenes are breath-taking. He and the "son" bookend this story beautifully. Cooper and the actor playing his "son" were a bit too unsympathetic to me to care what happened to them in the end. I can understand the negative reviews: it's hard to sit still and watch a story when you accustom yourselves to thinking deafening noise levels are indicative of a movie's worth.

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..

The Place Beyond the Pines

The Place Beyond the Pines is an extraordinary, ground breaking movie. The performances, the directing, the cinematography, the music are exceptional. It is an experience not to be missed. Go see it in a theater now and don't wait for the home release. It is a true theatrical event and deserves to be seen on the big screen.
