the place beyond the pines

This week, I was planning to discuss in detail THE PLACE BEYOND THE PINES. This was my agenda for two reasons. First, and simply put, this film is well-worth seeing and reviewing for a range of reasons. Second, it was shot on location here in upstate New York.

Tonight marks the local premiere of the film The Place Beyond The Pines, starring Bradley Cooper, Eva Mendes, Ray Liotta and Ryan Gosling, which was filmed in several Capital Region locales and takes place in Schenectady.

WAMC's Brian Shields spoke with Don Rittner, head of the Schenectady Film Commission, who helped bring the film to town and who has a bit part in the movie.
