Ryan Gosling has moved completely behind the camera and into a dark underworld for the film Lost River. Gosling wrote and directed the film about a teenage boy who discovers a mysterious road leading to an underwater town. From the looks of the first official trailer for the film, that barely begins to tell the fantastical story. With bikes and houses burning in flames and a song about admiring one’s own body, it’s hard to tell what the film is actually about, but I think that’s probably Gosling’s point. Take a look below:
Lost River will premiere this week at the Cannes Film Festival and is expected to be released later this year. Originally titled How To Catch A Monster, the film stars Christina Hendricks, Eva Mendes, Matt Smith, and Saoirse Ronan.
