Movie Review – The Place Beyond the Pines

The Place Beyond the Pines This movie is interesting because of its non-traditional structure. It interconnects the story of two flawed men, and examines how their actions affect their sons.

Ryan Gosling gives a sparse, electric performance. It’s so good, in fact, that I almost wish the story had stayed focused on Luke. But this story, like life, moves forward, and deliciously reveals the results of two fathers’ best intentions.

Both men have secrets and both suffer for them, setting up their sons’ lives and journeys.

Grade: B

About The Peetimes: The movie becomes progressively more involved with multiple characters so I would recommend using the first two peetimes.

The third peetime is adequate but the fourth is only for emergencies, as it splits time between multiple story lines.

There are no extra scenes during, or after, the end credits of The Place Beyond the Pines. (What we mean by Anything Extra)
