Before Ryan Gosling's directorial debut Lost River debuts in limited theaters and VOD formats tomorrow, Warner Bros. has released three new clips from this dark drama. The new filmmaker does not appear in front of the camera, but he directs an ensemble cast featuring Christina Hendricks, Saoirse Ronan, Eva Mendes, Matt Smith, Iain De Caestecker, Ben Mendelsohn and Barbara Steele. For those in the Los Angeles area, writer-director Ryan Gosling will also take part in a Q&A session moderated by director Edgar Wright following the 3:00PM screening at Sundance Sunset Cinemas on Sunday, April 12th.
Lost River is a dark fairy tale about love, family and the fight for survival in the face of danger. In the virtually abandoned city of Lost River, Billy, a single mother of two, is led into a macabre underworld in her quest to save her childhood home and hold her family together. Her teenage son Bones discovers a mystery about the origins of Lost River that triggers his curiosity and sets into motion an unexpected journey that will test his limits and the limits of those he loves.
The first clip features Christina Hendricks' Billy, who is trying to convince Ben Mendelsohn's Dave that she wants to keep the family house she grew up in. The second clip shows Iain De Caestecker's Bones going on the run from one of Bully's (Matt Smith) thugs, while the third shows Bully trying to offer a ride home to Rat (Saoirse Ronan). Take a look at these scenes below, before checking out Lost River in theaters or on VOD formats.
