One of the most acclaimed films of the 2012 Toronto Film Festival, this crime drama from the director of Blue Valentine centres on the intense consequences when a professional motorcycle rider turned bank robber (Ryan Gosling) runs into a rookie police officer (Bradley Cooper). Co-stars Ray Liotta and Eva Mendes.
Luke (Gosling) forsakes his life on the road - as a motorbike stunt performer - to settle down and support his newborn son and former lover, Romina (Mendes). When his new employer (Ben Mendelsohn) discovers Luke’s talents, the pair partner up in a string of spectacular bank robberies. But as Luke crosses paths with Avery Cross (Cooper) - an ambitious rookie cop navigating a local police department ruled by the menacingly corrupt detective Deluca (Liotta) - their violent confrontation spirals into a tense generational feud.
