“I believe in ancestry and legacy and how things don’t go away”- Cianfrance
This under-rated and ambitious thriller-drama about the cycle of inherited poverty and privilege is uniquely structured, deeply moving and features some of the best performances of future stars Ryan Gosling and Bradley Cooper.
A harsh indictment of the ‘mythical’ American dream, Cianfrance examines the great disparity between the poor whose lack of options ensures their constant struggle for survival and the white elites whose privilege never leaves them.
The film also poses these important questions-
Who are the real criminals? What’s the difference between lawbreakers and its upholders? Does privilege ever go away or is it simply passed on from generation to generation?
