I spent my Friday afternoon at the movies. Today’s feature:
The Place Beyond the Pines
Ryan Gosling and Eva Mendes look kinda depressed, don’t they?
I was pretty low after the film was over, and I only had to watch it — I can only imagine how they must have felt living that story.
It’s a downer, no lie. And it’s violent. Plus, Ryan Gosling is only in the first third of the movie — I cry foul! Thank goodness Bradley Cooper was there to pick up the slack.
That’s the positive hing tabout the movie. Wonderful actors, moving performances. But grim. The previews were dark and violent, too.
If you go, be sure to get candy for moral support.
