Mini Review - The Place Beyond The Pines

The Place Beyond The Pines (out May 9) begins with a motorcycle stunt rider turning to a life of crime to provide for his infant son. Where it heads next came as a complete surprise. I can't get this film out of my head! I'm struggling to grasp the broad message but I'm impressed by the thought-provoking characters created by director Derek Cianfrance. Grade: B+.
