In the urban blight-ridden city of Lost River, teenager Bones (Iain De Caestecker) pillages scrap from abandoned homes to help his single mom Billy (Christina Hendricks) make ends meet. After she's encouraged to find work at a creepy cabaret by her sleazy lender (Ben Mendelsohn), he must go on an odyssey that might lead to their salvation, as well as the town's. Ryan Gosling's stylishly surreal bow as writer/director co-stars Saoirse Ronan, Matt Smith, Eva Mendes, and Barbara Steele. 95 min. Widescreen; Soundtrack: English.
