I am a watcher of any movie Bradley Cooper's blue eyes have been on the set of, so I set up camp on the couch last night and settled in for, "The Place Beyond the Pines."
Although, I am a big Ryan Gosling fan as well, it took me a while to fully commit to the story line. And then Dane DeHaan, who played Jason, an introverted young teen who was searching for answers about his father, came on screen. I became engrossed with his vulnerable, lonely character.
The very last scene choked me up so much that I became an emotional wreck for at least five solid minutes. I'm talking, crying-into-the-couch cushion stuff!
Dane DeHaan---what a great actor. He reminds me of a young Brad Pit/Benicio Del Toro.
"The Place Beyond the Pines"---definitely worth a Friday night in front of the big screen t.v., especially for those of us who had a missing biological father dynamic in our family life. Good stuff.
Dane DeHaan's character in "The Place Beyond the Pines" was extremely touching. I am a big fan of this actor now~
