Derek Cianfrance’s The Place Beyond the Pines is an enormous and stunning film. And although thrilling, it’s not entirely rife with spoilers and all about narrative tricks; however, you don’t want to give away too much before the actual premiere. But between a batches of stills, trailers, soundtrack bites, scenes, posters, and now a new clip from the sprawling drama, for those you that have not seen the film yet, you may want to savor the surprise of its intimate moments. Personally, I went into the film without a clue and enjoyed the experince all the more for that.
So in this new clip we see Ryan Gosling as Luke, a traveling motor cycle stunt man and Eva Mendes as Romina as his ex-flame as the reunite at the fairground in front of the ferris wheel when Luke rides back into town for work. The moment serves as a catalyst for most of the major events of the film that span decades and legacies. But from the clip you get a taste of how aesthetically rich and beautiful the cinematography is in the film, the bright colors of the fair melting behind the beautiful stars. And obviously, watching this small clip doesn’t do justice to what you’ll see on the big screen but in the meantime, enjoy.
