Ryan Gosling has been to the Cannes Film Festival as an actor, starring in the critically adored "Drive," the equally admired "Blue Valentine" and the less universally embraced "Only God Forgives." But this year he's back as a filmmaker, with his directorial debut "Lost River" playing in Un Certain Regard. It premieres this week, and this first taste of his fantastical film has now arrived online.

Lost River

Ryan Gosling has been to the Cannes Film Festival as an actor, starring in the critically adored "Drive," the equally admired "Blue Valentine" and the less universally embraced "Only God Forgives." But this year he's back as a filmmaker, with his directorial debut "Lost River" playing in Un Certain Regard. It premieres this week, and this first taste of his fantastical film has now arrived online.

"I wanted to make this film because it's a movie that I would want to see. Like many children who grew up in the 1980s, I first approached the cinema through mainstream films. I was excited to shoot this kind of story, but with the language of filmmaker that I've acquired through the years," Gosling said in the press notes for the film (via Ryan Gosling Addicted). And certainly, this teaser would've expanded our young minds. An array of striking images are compiled here, opening a window into the story of Billy, a single mother of two, who is swept into a macabre and dark fantasy underworld while her teenage son discovers a secret road leading to an underwater town. 

Christina HendricksBen MendelsohnEva MendesSaoirse Ronan and Matt Smith star in the film and stayed tuned for verdict. Watch below.
