See a Clip of Ben Mendelsohn & Ryan Gosling as They Plan a Robbery in ‘The Place Beyond the Pines’
I’ve said it many times but I believe 2013 will be the year of Ben Mendelsohn. Although he’s been working in film for decades now—everywhere from Terrence Malick’s The New World to Baz Luhrmann’s Australia, this is the first year American has really fallen in love with him. In the past few months, we’ve seen him as the drug-addicted small time crime partner to Scoot McNairy in Killing Them Softly, the uncommitted and absent father to Jessa on Girls, and in just a few weeks we’ll be enjoying his performance as Ryan Gosling’s partner in crime in Derek Cianfrance’s The Place Beyond the Pines.
And in a new clip from the film, we get a taste of the casual relationship between the two as they plan out one of their bank robbing schemes. It’s a lighter moment in Pines, filled with humor and lovability that builds to the catalyst the pushes the film forward. Check out the clip below and see the film March 29th in New York and Los Angeles.
