In Derek Cianfrance's (BLUE VALENTINE) latest film, Ryan Gosling plays Luke, a drifter who makes a living doing motorcycle stunts in a traveling carnival.

When he discovers that he has an infant son, he decides he wants to be able to take care of the child.

These actions cause his life to become intertwined with a straight-laced police officer played by Bradley Cooper.
