LOST RIVER is a dark fairy tale about love, family and the fight for survival in the face of danger. In the virtually abandoned city of Lost River, Billy (Hendricks), a single mother, is led into a macabre underworld in her quest to save her childhood home and hold her family together. Meanwhile, her teenage son Bones (De Caestecker) discovers a mystery about the origins of Lost River that launches him on an unexpected journey. An idiosyncratic film with a lushly surreal vision shot in the dilapidated neighborhoods of Detroit, LOST RIVER owes a debt to both David Lynch and Gosling’s recent collaborator Nicolas Winding Refn but it also shows that Gosling is, as the New York Times put it, “a filmmaker with a poetic sensibility of his own.”

“The movie owes a sizable debt to David Lynch and to Nicolas Winding Refn, who directed Mr. Gosling in ‘Drive’ and ‘Only God Forgives,’ but it reveals Mr. Gosling as a filmmaker with a poetic sensibility of his own.” – Ben Kenigsberg, New York Times

“At heart, ‘Lost River’ is a midnight movie for those ready to find it and go with the flow.” – Jordan Hoffman, New York Daily News

“Avowedly arty and rich to the point of bursting its seams.” – Kieron Tyler, The Arts Desk
