The Place Beyond The Pines

Highly engaging, if a little overlong, story which asks the question of whether the sins of the father are indeed visited on the son.  How far does the physical presence or emotional absence of a father shape the way people turn out?

Quality performances from Ryan Gosling and Bradley Cooper in a film that was not without some plot-contrivances, but which ultimately provided both a good evening’s viewing and also proof, if any were needed, that there are few things cuter than Ryan Gosling holding a baby.
