The Place Beyond the Pines is an ambitious tale of scope and sequence. It embodies the impact of heritage and the lingering effects of our actions. Director Derek Cianfrance brings the same unrelenting realism to the stark relationships of this film as he did with his last project Blue Valentine. Both films share a sense of moral ambiguity where no choice is a forgone conclusion. The triptych narrative unfolds like a novel coming to life. Every act is distinctly different from the next as it follows a particular set of unique characters. Each storyline progresses from where the last one left off as the life of one character bleeds into the life of the next. Themes are effectually handled and the points certainly come across—sometimes too bluntly. »

Ryan Gosling’s directorial debut which stars everyone he’s ever worked with continues to intrigue us with its bonkers storyline and an ever-expanding cast. So far the roster for How To Catch A Monster includes Christina Hendricks (who shared screen time with Gosling in Drive), Eva Mendes and Ben Mendelsohn (in The Place Beyond The Pines), and Matt Smith, star of Doctor Who.
For those of you out of the loop, How To Catch A Monster is set against the “surreal dreamscape of a vanishing city,” which sounds utterly terrifying to be honest. The synopsis further reveals “Billy (Hendricks), a single mother of two is swept into a macabre and dark fantasy underworld while her teenage son discovers a secret road leading to an underwater town. Both Billy and Bones must dive deep into the mystery, if their family is to survive.”

Gosling’s Drive co-star Christina Hendricks will headline the dark fantasy as Billy, a single mother who ventures into a mysterious underwater city in search of her missing child, which will begin shooting later this month.
In an interview with Total Film, Smith offered this little update as well as confirmation he’ll adopt an American accent for the role:
I was in New York and I was about to fly back, and then I got a phone call saying Ryan wanted to meet me and come over. So I read his film and I thought it was brilliant. And then I auditioned and we spent about four hours together doing some stuff, and he filmed it on his iPhone. And that was it. »
