Here's an upcoming flick that looks like it's low flying on the radar. Surprising because both Ryan Gosling and Bradley Cooper are enjoying some career highs. Eva Mendes and crime drama veteran, Ray Liotta join the talented cast in what looks to be a movie to watch for. Take a look:
Certainly plays up the indie feature vibe with the music. I love it.
As far as story line goes, we've already seen a lot of what ' The Place Beyond the Pines' has to offer (Robber gets dangerously hungry for more robbery, and honest officer is faced with having to turn in crooked cops). Where this movie holds promise however is in the motivation behind the two key characters which seems to have the father and son relationship as focus. Movies.com says it's "An exhilarating epic of fathers, sons and consequences."
I'm certain that Gosling and Cooper will meet up in this movie, but what happens when finally they do? What if one is responsible for the death of the other? No huge surprise there if that's the case. But, what if that one decision plants the seed for revenge in their sons? Like what if Gosling offs Cooper because he wants to provide for his son, but that ultimately takes away the thing he values most when Cooper's son grows up to kill Gosling's.
Keep an eye out for this one.
