if you ride like lightning, you're gonna crash like thunder.

a few weeks ago i went to new york to eat like a queen, party like a professional and learn to ride the subway solo. i also agreed to partake in a press event during my vacation for two very distinct reasons. 1) ryan gosling. 2) the waldorf astoria.

the place beyond the pines is one of the most ambitious films i've had the pleasure of seeing in a long time. the acting is top shelf and the music was on point. while not able to attend the press conference, focus features did grant me an individual interview with emory cohen - a well spoken and talented kid who holds his own in a movie that boasts gosling, bradley cooper, eva mendes, ray liotta and dane dehaan. it also doesn't hurt to spend the afternoon in the legendary new york hotel and feast on free food and drinks.

lastly, if i didn't agree to the interview i would never have witnessed ryan gosling shimmy down a hallway to whitney houston's classic "i wanna dance with somebody". TRUE STORY.

its out in LA/NY now. opening wide soon.
