This movie is a dark fairy tale about love, family, and the fight for survival in the face of danger. In the virtually abandoned city of Lost River, Billy ( Christina Hendricks ), a single mother of two, is led into a macabre underworld in her quest to save her childhood home and hold her family together. Her teenage son Bones ( Iain De Caestecker ) discovers a mystery about the origins of Lost River that triggers his curiosity and sets into motion an unexpected journey that will test his limits and the limits of those he loves.Written by

Matt Smith filmed his scenes during his break away from playing The Doctor on Doctor Who (2005). He had to shave his head for the role of Bully and wore a wig for the last episodes of Doctor Who (2005), which were filmed later on. See more »
Bones tries to sell copper tubing he scrapped from a house to a scrap metal collector for $100. Copper only goes for about $2.00 a pound so he really wouldn't have gotten much more than that. However, Bones says to the collector, "There's about a hundred dollars worth in the bag!" He's not referring to the single pipe which he pulls out and hands to the collector; he's referring to the bag's entire contents. Given the size of the bag, and the amount he stuffed in there, it's conceivable that he has roughly 50 lbs. of scrap copper to sell. See more »

Honestly, this is for those looking for something artistic
Id hate to compare Gosling to Refn, because in reality their styles in film making are completely different. This being said, I found Lost River very pleasing for that reason. Gosling's debut is worth watching. If you have immersed yourself in categories of film such as Lost River, you'll love it. However, if you haven't seen many movies like this one, I recommend finding a title related to this one with a higher rating and (maybe) higher commercialization. Afterwards, come back and appreciate what Gosling has to offer because every frame is shot with care. He is an actor/director who cares and there isn't a whole lot of that these days.
