Warner Bros. has decided not to release Ryan Gosling’s widely panned directorial debut Lost River in theaters.

The dark fantasy film, penned and directed by Gosling, follows a single mom and her teenage son who discover a underwater town near Detroit. It premiered to boos at the Cannes Film Festival in May; critics slammed the picture, including TIME’s Mary and Richard Corliss, who called it “pretentious horsesh-t.”

But don’t despair, die-hard Gosling fans! The film, which stars Christina Hendricks and Eva Mendes, will be available to stream at home beginning in April, according to Collider.
