Check out the first 30-sec. TV Spot for the indie crime drama "The Place Beyond the Pines," in which Ryan Gosling stars as Luke, a struggling new father who recklessly uses his motorcycle stuntman skills to become a bank robber. He soon finds himself pursued by an ambitious rookie cop (Bradley Cooper) looking to make a name for himself. The Derek Cianfrance-directed film is gathering early buzz and earning solid reviews from early festival screenings, and will have a limited release in select theaters starting on March 29th.
Luke (Ryan Gosling) is in constant motion, a high-wire motorcycle stunt performer who travels from town to town with the carnival. Passing through Schenectady in upstate New York, he tries to reconnect with a former lover, Romina (Eva Mendes), only to learn that she has in his absence given birth to their son Jason. Luke resolves to forsake life on the road and to provide for his newfound family, taking a job as car mechanic with Robin (Ben Mendelsohn). Robin soon discovers Luke’s special talents, and proposes to partner with him in a string of spectacular bank robberies. But it is only a matter of time before Luke will run up against the law – which comes in the form of Avery Cross (Bradley Cooper). Avery is an ambitious rookie cop navigating a local police department ruled by the menacingly corrupt detective Deluca (Ray Liotta). When Avery, just beginning to balance his profession and his family life with wife Jennifer (Rose Byrne) and their infant son AJ, confronts Luke, the full consequences 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.
