A new featurette has been released promoting Derek Cianfrance’s new film, “The Place Beyond the Pines.” The featurette, “Going to the Place Beyond the Pines,” features Cianfrance and the film’s stars–Ryan Gosling, Bradley Cooper and Eva Mendes–discussing the film. Check it out below the post.

Focus Features’ “The Place Beyond the Pines” is now in select theaters in New York and Los Angeles. The film, directed by Cianfrance and written by Cianfrance along with Ben Coccio and Darius Marder, also stars Ray Liotta, Rose Byrne, Mahershala Ali, Dane DeHaan, Emory Cohen and Ben Mendelsohn. The film delves into the relationship between fathers and sons:

“The daring new movie from the director of ‘Blue Valentine,’ ‘The Place Beyond the Pines’ is a sweeping emotional drama powerfully exploring the unbreakable bond between fathers and sons.

Luke (Academy Award® nominee Ryan Gosling) is a high-wire motorcycle stunt performer who travels with the carnival from town to town. While passing through Schenectady in upstate New York, he tries to reconnect with a former lover, Romina (Eva Mendes), only to learn that she has given birth to their son Jason in his absence. Luke decides to give up life on the road to try and provide for his newfound family by taking a job as a car mechanic. Noticing Luke’s ambition and talents, his employer Robin (Ben Mendelsohn) proposes to partner with Luke in a string of spectacular bank robberies – which will place Luke on the radar of ambitious rookie cop Avery Cross (Academy Award® nominee Bradley Cooper).

Avery, who has to navigate a local police department ruled by the menacing and corrupt detective Deluca (Ray Liotta), is also struggling to balance his professional life with his family life, which includes his wife Jennifer (Rose Byrne) and their infant son AJ. The consequences of Avery’s confrontation with Luke will reverberate into the next generation. It is then that the two sons, Jason (Dane DeHaan) and AJ (Emory Cohen), must face their fateful, shared legacy.”
