America’s Commonly Mispronounced Towns And Cities; Schenectady Ranked

‘The Place Beyond the Pines’ Review

To watch 'The Place Beyond the Pines' is to observe characters making discoveries. Discoveries about their past, their environment, their heritage. When the revelations come they aren't met with gasps or dropped objects, but with an understanding, an acceptance that, yes, this is, indeed, the way things are.

While you'd swear with every bone in your body that this vast, rich, symbol-heavy tale was surely based on a thick doorstopper of a novel, the surprising fact remains that it is, actually, an original screenplay.

There has been almost no word of the film since shooting ended, until now. Watch the trailer and first glimpse of the film after the jump.
