Easily, hands down, the best movie I saw at TIFF this year, and already with a place reserved on my Best Of 2013, Derek Cianfrance's "The Place Beyond The Pines" is, as I wrote in my review, "a brilliant, towering picture." And yes, that quote has been surprisingly pulled for the trailer. And yes, this latest reunion between "Blue Valentine" helmer Cianfrance and Ryan Gosling is a knockout.

Easily, hands down, the best movie I saw at TIFF this year, and already with a place reserved on my Best Of 2013, Derek Cianfrance's "The Place Beyond The Pines" is, as I wrote in my review, "a brilliant, towering picture." And yes, that quote has been surprisingly pulled for the trailer. And yes, this latest reunion between "Blue Valentine" helmer Cianfrance and Ryan Gosling is a knockout.

The first trailer for the movie is here, and don't be worried, there are no plot spoilers contained within. Instead, it's a perfectly evocative look at the story which centers on Gosling's lead Luke, who learns he's a single father and takes to bank robbing to support his child in what is the start of a drama that spans decades and changes the course of two families. It's an epic saga, the kind they don't really make anymore, and it's a terrific accomplishment boasting a solid supporting group of players, including Bradley Cooper (giving another great turn), Eva Mendes, Ben Mendelsohn, Ray Liotta, Dane DeHaan and more.

"The Place Beyond The Pines" hits theaters on March 29, 2013. Watch below.
