The Place Beyond the Pines follows the interwoven lives of two men as they struggle through the world. Luke, played by Academy Award nominee Ryan Gosling is a mysterious, almost mythical motorcycle stunt performer who travels from town to town with a carnival. Ending up in Schenectady in upstate New York, he comes across a former lover (played by Eva Mendes) who reveals that in his absence she has given birth to a son - and it's his.
Giving up his life on the road to try and provide for his rather unexpected family, Luke ends up committing a string of bank robberies through the use of his stunt riding abilities. This puts him in the firing line of an ambitious police officer called Avery Cross (played by Bradley Cooper) who is trying to move up in his increasingly corrupt department. Unfolding over fifteen years, the sins of these two men will reverberate through their families.

Decent film that held few surprises in plot but was very well acted and written. Steelbook looks nice as well
It was my first time on this site and I'm 100% satisfied. I live in Italy and here you can't find steelbooks (besides, many movies here contain the italian dubbing). I love this movie and the steelbook is just perfect. Perfect print and video/sound quality. The product took only 4 days to arrive & it was perfectly packaged ; i couldn't be happier! The price is very very good too! I'm going to buy many other products from Zavvi. ---- Consiglio a tutti i clienti Italiani di non esitare ad acquistare da questo sito, io vivo nel Nord Italia e i pacchi mi sono arrivati dopo soli 4 giorni dalla spedizione, con imballaggio perfetto.
Yet another excellent performance from Ryan Gosling. Edge of your seat stuff, slick, and the steelbook is very nice too.
This film is one of my favourites from last year. The film was very well directed with masterful cinematography, and fantastic storylines. The acting was also superb. Ryan Gosling, playing a troubled man who discover's he has a child and starts doing bad things to make up for it, is fantastic. However, in my personal opinion, Bradley Cooper steals his scenes, as a good cop in a police department, riddled with corruption. The steelbook as well is very good, with great design and colouring. If you are looking for a brilliant drama buy this.
I didn't have any expectations when I first heard about it, even after watching the trailer. However, once I finally had the chance to watch the entire movie, I felt like I was watching a piece of art. With the enormous talent of Ryan Gosling, Bradley Cooper and Dane DeHaan, I felt compelled to keep watching and before I knew, the movie was over and I wanted to watch more, to know what happened after.
The design of the steelbook is superb , really a beautiful piece to own ! The movie itself is amazing , a great story told by a great director and the performance are incredible ! Fetch it!
This movie is absolutely phenomenal. Performances spot on. This steel is also just perfect. It looks somewhat white in the picture, but its really a sort of silver, which is fine. The artwork is great, front and back, and the inside has some great art too. Phenomenal steel to match this movie.
really nice steelbook with cool cover and back artworks. theres also pictures on the inside of the case.
A great looking steelbook. Arrived efficiently and in good condition. The packaging was great as usual. The film itself is superb. One of my favourite Bradley Cooper performances alongside Silver Linings Playbook. Ryan Gosling is brilliant as per usual and Eva Mendes does her bit. Definitely a worthwhile purchase!
The Place Beyond the Pines is a great movie! Highly recommend.
The Place Beyond the Pines - Zavvi Exclusive Limited Edition Steelbook - Double Play (Blu-Ray and DVD) is a great movie and a great steelbook. It's a must-have!
The Place Beyond the Pines - Zavvi Exclusive Limited Edition Steelbook - Double Play (Blu-Ray and DVD) is a great film and the fact it comes in an awesome Steelbook with both DVD and Blu-Ray means you can't ask for much else really. I am very happy with this purchase!
To say the least, the Zavvi Exclusive Limited Edition Steelbook for this The Place Beyond the Pines Double Play (Blu-Ray and DVD) is just as beautiful as the movie itself. Great movie, some good special features such as behind the scenes videos, trailers and commentary and the steelbook itself is a wonderful design.
I eagerly awaited this Steelbook and was not disappointed with the quality or content as this movie although weighing in at a hefty 141 minutes it does not leave time for you to lose concentration. Ryan Gosling is absolutely outstanding in his role as Luke and with quality support from Bradley Cooper and Eva Mendez this movie moves, entertains and grips you from start to finish. It can almost be divided into 3 parts as it deals with the different timeline of the characters and their lives in the present and the future, I cannot fault the storyline or any acting as this is a thoroughly deserved 5 star rating, excellent quality for your money.
Loved this film, really didn't expect the way the story panned out! This is going to be a cult classic.
The Place Beyond the Pines is a beautiful steelbook for a beautiful movie. Do not miss this opportunity for any reason!
The Place Beyond the Pines - Zavvi Exclusive Limited Edition Steelbook is a very good product and great film. Was worth paying the extra for the steelbook of this
The Place Beyond the Pines - Zavvi Exclusive Limited Edition Steelbook is a great film, great case, definitely worth the money. Maybe not for everyone, but this film contains some of the best performances by the leading cast. Worth a watch.
I would highly recommend The Place Beyond the Pines - Zavvi Exclusive Limited Edition Steelbook - Double Play (Blu-ray and DVD). It's an epic film that has a great story, packed with great performances and action scenes. This is well worth the price especially for the steelbook packaging. It's one of the nicest steelbooks I've got, it's a real slick bit of kit! Well worth a look!
Nice design on the steelbook, also like the text on the back. The film itself was pretty good. Though it does feel like three movies sandwiched together and makes it too long. Without giving the plot away the third story does also seem a bit far fetched. On the whole its worth a go.
