Reteamed with Drive director Nicolas Winding Refn, Gosling stars as Julian, a drug-smuggling expatriate who knows the ins and outs of Bangkok’s criminal underworld like the back of his hand. Julian’s life gets violently turned upside down, when his mother convinces him to track down his brother’s killer and avenge his brother’s death.

Read the full transcript of our conversation with Mr. Ryan Gosling here:
Sony Entertainment Network: When you initially read the script, what stood out that made you decide to be a part of this film?
Ryan Gosling: It wasn’t really about the script. It was more about working with Nic. In that, we had had this great experience making Drive and him being offered a lot of things which were a lot bigger. And he was still deciding to go to Thailand and make this small film that was certainly going to divide people. And I just felt like I wanted to go on that [journey with him].
SEN: This is your second film with director Nicolas Winding Refn. What do you enjoy most about working with him?
RG: His family kind of comes everywhere that he goes and he’s just kind of great. I mean it’s funny for a guy that makes movies that are as violent as they are, he’s such a sweet family guy…so I think I like that duality of him because who he is privately is so much different than the films that he makes.
