Ryan Gosling; the man of many talents...



So, apparently Ryan Gosling is going to make his directorial debut soon.  I'm highly anticipating this, and I literally just read about it three seconds ago.  The idea of a modern adult fairy tale is one that excites me, and has for a while.  I am often drawn to books and movies that try and incorporate this fantastical idea, but it is very tricky to do right.  You can't completely submerge yourself because then you lose the maturity.  You have to strike a balance and really meld the two worlds together, which is something that it appears Gosling is intending to do with this.  The film stars Christina Hendricks as a single mother “swept into a macabre and dark fantasy underworld while her teenage son discovers a secret road leading to an underwater town.”  Sounds pretty interesting to me!

  1. This sounds very intriguing! Speaking of "macabre", have you heard Gosling's band Dead Man's Bones? If you haven't, check out this song: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=to7PxdyEdDw
