"Un Certain Regard looks strong, with Ryan Gosling's directorial debut "Lost River" probably the headliner"
The LA Times adds:
"Shot in Detroit last year, “Lost River” has been one of the more anticipated projects in moviedom, both because of its director pedigree (Gosling does not star) and its plot line, which is said to concern a single mother and an underwater utopia. (Though slightly lower profile than the competition section, Un Certain Regard is often the home for first-time directors.) The movie does not yet have a U.S. distributor or release date, though you wouldn’t guess it from the breathless Internet anticipation about the film."
Thanks to @TheFilmStage we now know more about the plot of 'Lost River' as star Iain De Caestecker is quoted:
“It’s about this family living in a town called Lost River, which is perhaps a place that was once full of family and happiness and love, and is now this town that’s slowly descending into a place without any hope. This family is holding onto the foundations of their house and everything they think they need to hold onto.”Cannot wait to see Ryan's next contribution to movies. This time behind the camera!
