Ryan Gosling has recently completed work on his debut film as director. Sadly, it’s not just him making sultry faces at the screen for an hour and a half while reading Feminist Ryan Gosling quotes and refusing to eat cereal, but it still looks pretty weird all the same.
The movie, entitled Lost River, has its premiere at the Cannes Film Festival later this week, and … I don’t know, just go ahead and look at this exclusive clip, featuring the internet’s other sensitive dreamboat crush, Matt Smith.
Lost River is the story of a single mother and her teenage son who stumble upon the path to an underwater town. In addition to Matt “Look At My Muscles” Smith, as he will be known for ever more, the film stars Christina Hendricks (Mad Men), Ben Mendelsohn (Game Of Thrones), Eva Mendes (Children Of The Corn V: Fields Of Terror) and Saoirse Ronan (Hanna).
We’re not sure what the actual fuck is going on in the above extract, but it looks a little bit Harmony Korine and a little bit Nicolas Winding Refn, and we’re intrigued.
