A chance encounter between a bank robber and a policeman resounds across the generations in this sprawling thriller. Luke (Ryan Gosling) is a motorcycle stuntman who regularly participates in carnivals across New York State. Then one day, his life changes forever when his ex, Romina (Eva Mendes), informs him that he has an infant son. Realising he must provide for the child, Luke becomes a bank robber, putting his motorcycle skills to use when it comes to making a quick getaway. Meanwhile, ambitious policeman Avery Cross (Bradley Cooper) is aiming to ascend the ladder whilst beset on all sides by rampant corruption. When the lives of these two very different men unexpectedly smash together, it has significant consequences not just for them but also, years later, for their sons. Blue Valentine director Derek Cianfrance reunites with Ryan Gosling for this atmospheric and violent drama. The impressive cast also includes Rose Byrne and Ray Liotta.
