Excellent movie, with lots of depth within the storyline, and excellent work by the entire cast.
In my opinion, Ryan Gosling is quickly positioning himself as the leading actor of his generation!
Finally, this one will stay in your mind for awhile, contemplating its full meaning.

A disjointed film. Two movies in one that had "zero" flow. I get the "relationships between father and son" theme, but I found none of the characters to be at all redeeming enough to care about their relationships. The story lines with each were boring and there was no expansion on secondary story lines or of other aspects that could have put some interest back into the film. If you like slow moving stories with dull characters, then this movies is for you. I found it not only to be a waste of money but more importantly a waste of my time. DON'T GO!

I absolutely was mesmerized by Ryan Gosling acting and appearacne. Cooper's too. I loved the movie almost to the end - until the two obnoxious kids showed up. I really hated the boy (the character) of Cooper's son.
The movie is definitely worth seeing. As I said before, it is Gosling all the way.

THE MOVIE WAS GREAT AND BEING A RESIDENT OF SCHENECTADY NY IT WAS WONDERFUL TO SEE ALL THE LOCAL SCENES. THE STORYLINE AND ACTORS WERE FANTISTIC.

Very well acted especially Ryan Gosling. He is an amazing actor and captures this role entirely.
The movie was too long and the plot became too "soap opera" like when the two sons' stories are told.
