Director Derek Cianfrance continues his exploration of family, love and relationships with The Place Beyond the Pines, based on the bestselling novel by M.L. Stedman. Despite the film’s problems, there is enough going for Light Between Oceans to warrant a watch, and it’s a must buy for fans of the film.
The Place Beyond The Pines sees Ryan Gosling reunite with Blue Valentine director, Derek Cianfrance, in a film, which is unlike anything else I have seen this year (or for a few years). This is an intense film, filled with many surprises and twists, and I have been astounded how none of the advertising or writing on the film thus far has given away anything that happens in the film.
