    The Place Beyond the Pines Review
    Without a doubt one of the must-see movies of 2013, the performances alone demand your attention, but the unusual story, compelling direction and fantastic accompanying score further make this a highly recommended outing. Just don't expect this to be Ryan Gosling's baby - it's far bigger than just him alone. If you figured the whole Gosling-as-a-getaway-driver theme would make this something of a half-cousin to Drive then you might be in for a surprise; these two are barely related (a similar disappointment will be found if you expect his reteaming with Drive director Nicolas Winding Refn - Only God Forgives - to be the spiritual sequel that it was advertised as). Don't let that put you off seeing The Place Beyond the Pines though, just see it for the right reasons.

    Highly recommended. You can read the in-depth film review HERE
