“I’m full of epic stories,” the loquacious Derek Cianfrance told Vanity Fair recently. And it’s true. We sat down with the director and co-writer behind “The Place Beyond The Pines,” and Cianfrance was indeed full of amazing stories. He told us in the part of our interview we ran yesterday that he had to pare down a 158 page script to 120 pages to earn his financing. So, did the filmmaker do a rewrite? Nope. He increased the margins as far as they would go and then selected the smallest font possible and got down to 120 pages. The financiers didn’t notice and he got his green light. Crafty, right? But that’s just one small story. ‘Pines’ stars Ryan Gosling, Eva Mendes Dane DeHaan, Ray Liotta, and Bradley Cooper in particular puts in another powerful performance that reveals him to be much more than just one of the boobs from "The Hangover" movies. »
