Q&A: Derek Cianfrance
Not even a hurricane could shut them down.
It took writer-director Derek Cianfrance 13 years to find financing for 2010's Blue Valentine. That movie, starring Ryan Gosling and Michelle Williams as a young married couple whose relationship hits the rocks, had to appeal its initial NC-17 rating in favor of a less-restrictive R. But The Weinstein Co. release ultimately earned Williams a best actress Oscar nomination and helped establish Cianfrance's reputation as an uncompromising filmmaker. His new film, The Place Beyond the Pines, a crime drama starring Cooper and Gosling that was shot in Schenectady, N.Y., will have its world premiere Sept. 7 in Toronto.
