Their two worlds collide when Luke takes part in a string of bank robberies and the consequences of their shocking confrontation will reverberate into the next generation. From the acclaimed director of Blue Valentine and co-starring Eva Mendes and Ray Liotta, this engaging and powerful thrill ride has critics raving, “5 Stars! The Place Beyond the Pines is huge in its ambition, huge in its achievement!” (Mick LaSalle, The San Francisco Chronicle)

Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: Its three stories are so loosely connected, its themes so scattered -- morality, justice, fate, fatherhood -- that it never manages to make a point. – Rafer Guzman, Newsday, Apr 11, 2013

Fresh: This naturalistic drama is ambitious to the point of being unwieldy... But once the story has advanced from one generation to the next and its thematic sweep has become apparent, these flaws seem much more tolerable. – J. R. Jones, Chicago Reader, Apr 12, 2013

Fresh: This is a story about legacy, the sins of the father, the restlessness in our souls. It's powerful, it's bold, it hits you hard. – Steven Rea, Philadelphia Inquirer, Apr 11, 2013

Fresh: "Pines" is hardy stuff, but it's at its toughest when Gosling's on screen. – Tom Long, Detroit News, Apr 12, 2013

Love it or you hate it

If viewers either love or hate a movie, then there's a good chance that I'll love it. I just love offbeat, and unusual film.

And, I loved this movie. The mood is dark and foreboding. There's a haunting undercurrent that keeps my interest. It's paced slowly, but to me, it was never boring. It was uncomfortable. And, I can watch it again and again.

I don't know

The truth is at the beginning it was really awesome and incredible but the story didn't play itself right. I'd prefer if you rent this. It's not a must watch and although entertaining at the beginning I'd prefer to have bought another movie.

One of the best

I really loved it
Everything is perfect and so professional
