Ryan Goslings directorial debut film “Lost River” will open in theaters on April 10, 2015 in Los Angeles, Austin, and New York. The film will also be available on the same day on Digital HD.

Lost River” is a 2014 American fantasy film written, produced, and directed by Ryan Gosling. The film stars Christina Hendricks, Iain De Caestecker, Matt Smith, Saoirse Ronan, and Eva Mendes.

"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 (Christina Hendricks), a single mother of two, is led into a macabre underworld in her quest to save her childhood home and hold her family together.

Her teenage son Bones (Iain De Caestecker) discovers a mystery about the origins of "Lost River" that triggers his curiosity and sets in motion an unexpected journey that will test his limits and the limits of those he loves.”

During SXSW Ryan Gosling had a Q&A moderated by his fellow filmmaker Guillermo Del Toro and they talked about the film “Lost River”. The two had a clear admiration for each other, and the conversation was light, fun, and very informative for the SXSW audience. Gosling and del Toro have developed a close friendship since SXSW.  One of the latest news about the Oscar-nominated actor Ryan Gosling is that he is in talks to star in Guillermo del Toro’s Disney movie, “Haunted Mansion.”

Ryan Gosling’s film is like a poem and a visual masterpiece.  He made this film like an expression of his first romantic love, deep, emotional, and experimental.  It’s probably the first vision on screen of Ryan Gosling’s brilliant future as a Director.  In the process of writing he traveled back and forth over the course of one year to Detroit and filmed on his own. He also inspired himself by listening the music from the composer Johnny Jewel which is wildly romantic and mysterious for a dark fairy tale.

Ryan Gosling is from Canada and said during the Q&A during SXSW that, “He was like everyone else in the world who grows up thinking about America as a pinnacle to accomplish your dreams.”  He said he had a romantic idea of living in the States and especially in Detroit, because it was the closest American city from Canada, and for him everything “cool” came from Detroit:  Motown, Eminem, and cars. He had the whole iconic idea of the American dream, but he realized later that Detroit was very different that he imagined.  In reality the city of Detroit has a large amount of abandoned neighborhoods where there are some families still attached to their homes and land even though their world around them has been falling apart.  Ryan Gosling felt affected by the reality of Detroit and he wanted to share his experience with the audience in a different way by directing a meaningful film; however,  he didn’t want to do it specifically about Detroit since the situation with families and societies is very universal.  He thought that using a fairy tale format would make it more accessible for the audience in general and he focused on developing characters in the emotional, physical, and socio-economical landscape.

Gosling considers Detroit as a city with an incredible energy; this city is going through a process of rebirth and reinvention and the people there have a lot of creativity.  He felt compelled to work that energy for his film.  He based his film on a romantic story of a young couple and a dark fairy tale where an evil spell is cast, and their romance is affected by the spell. The film has evil forces and magical elements. The film also has powerful images, the cinematographer of the film is Benoît Debie who was referred by other filmmakers to Gosling as one of the most qualified to make a visual impression.

On the other hand, it’s interesting to mention that Ryan Gosling found the male lead role “Bones” (Iain De Caestecker) on the website “Cast It Talent” in an open casting call for the male lead role.  He recalled the time when he found himself as a child at an open casting call for the “Mickey Mouse Club House,” that gave him a huge opportunity in the TV and film industry.  As a child he grew up in a small town and his mom and he didn’t know any talent agent or anyone in the industry.  He felt excited to find part of the cast through this website with people who didn’t have agents. He found the main character “Bones” who brought authenticity to the film through “Cast it Talent.”


Ryan Gosling will be promoting his directorial debut, "Lost River," at the Apple SoHo store in NYC. During his appearance he’ll take questions from the audience and discuss the new project.  Meet the Filmmaker: Ryan Gosling, “Lost River” April 11, 12:00 p.m. To make a reservation for this free event, visit here Apple Soho
