THE PLACE BEYOND THE PINES is an upcoming 2013 crime film directed by Derek Cianfrance, written by Cianfrance, Ben Coccio and Darius Marder. The film reunites Cianfance and Ryan Gosling, with whom he worked on 2010’s Blue Valentine. It also stars Bradley Cooper, Rose Byrne and Eva Mendes. The title is the English meaning of the city of Schenectady, New York, which is derived loosely from a Mohawk word for "place beyond the pine plains.
It is the multi-generational story of a motorcycle stunt rider (Gosling), who considers committing a crime in order to provide for his newborn child, an act that puts him on a collision course with a cop-turned-politician (Cooper).
