Ryan Gosling finally fleshes out the reason for his silence in the cinemas last year as he opens his first feature film for public viewing, “Lost River.” Read on to know more about the details of this scoop.
Of all the manly men of Hollywood who graced the big screens over last year, he was not one of them. Seeing as though he has literally bowed out of starring in any films that would have been shown last year, the on-screen actor was actually busy in the production of his first fantasy, thriller feature film “Lost River.”
According to First Showing, “Lost River” debuted last year during the Cannes Film Festival but received not-so positive remarks with the way he undertook the concept of surrealism in his first film project. Still, the actor-turned-director pursued his medium and managed to gain a few remarks that redeemed the all–too harsh responses that he got in the first wave. The film was simply too weird without much direction but one cannot truly argue with art.
Looking at the trailer, the movie doesn’t seem to lack aesthetics and it actually looks like an enjoyable movie to watch. The sense of weirdness that most critics highlighted in the film is quite visible in the 2 minute 25 seconds preview. Not to mention an impressive casting with Christina Hendricks, Iain De Caestecker, Saoirse Ronan, Eva Mendes and Ben Mendelsohn. Gosling even had an intensely artistic person controlling the cinematic of his camera with director of photography Benoît Debie.
“Lost River” (formerly known as “How to Catch a Monster”) is written and directed by Ryan Gosling (star of “Drive,” “The Ides of March,” “Crazy Stupid Love”), making his feature directorial debut. According to the synopsis posted by SlashFil..com, Set against the surreal dreamscape of a vanishing city, Billy (Christina Hendricks), a single mother of two, is swept into a macabre and dark fantasy underworld. Bones (Iain De Caestecker), her eighteen-year-old son, discovers a secret road leading to an underwater town. Both Billy and Bones must dive deep into the mystery if their family is to survive.
“Lost River” is set to premiere in selected theaters and on Digital HD on Apr. 10, 2015.
