At the mention of 'New York', most people think of Manhattan, maybe Brooklyn or Queens. Few people realise that New York State actually contains sixty-two cities. One of these is Schenectady, which takes its name from the Native American word meaning 'the place beyond the pines'. Ryan Gosling plays Luke, an enigmatic, highly skilled fairground motorcyclist who begins robbing banks to provide money for his young family, in this crime drama set in Schenectady. Standing in his way is Avery — a determined cop, looking to make a name for himself and clean up the dirty-town corruption that plagues his beat.

What our educators say

"Some of them saw a clip from Wakolda (The German Doctor) on TV recently and really wanted to watch it. So I thought I’d take a chance, not expecting them to watch the whole film but the majority were absolutely gripped. "
