SYNOPSIS

'Ryan Gosling, the white knight of Drive, turns dark destroyer in Derek Cianfrance's stylish, wandering crime drama. Gosling plays Luke, a motorbike stuntman, riding the Cage of Death at carnivals across New York state. Off the bike he's quiet, soulful, good with kids. He wears a distinctive leather jacket, has a grizzled mechanic as his confidant and drives to relax and forget. Fans of Nicolas Winding Refn's ultra-violent fairy tale may find all this a bit familiar. Then, with a high-pitched howl, Cianfrance yanks the Danish director's chain clean off. Luke learns he has a son by his ex, Romina (Eva Mendes) and, keen to play poppa, decides to provide for them by robbing banks in spectacularly violent style.' The Guardian
