The Place Beyond the Pines

The Place Beyond the Pines ★★★★

The Place Beyond the Pines is full-scaled, wonderful drama about real life. I love the acting by Ryan Gosling, Eva Mendes, Bradley Cooper, Rose Byrne and Ray Liotta. Remember seeing Mahershala Ali in the 4400 series, surprising but well picked choice. The Chronicle star Dane DeHaan stands out in his unstable role.

The movie is quite depressing, but also well put together tale. The central message seems to be "we are all human, in good or bad". Just brilliant.
