Ben Affleck has gone through the ringer when it comes to popular opinion. A successful young writer and director with best pal Matt Damon to Gigli to Academy Award winning director to FRIGGEN BATMAN! The guy has had a whirlwind of a career and yet he prevails onwards with some amazing new dramas.
This time he directs and stars in crime thriller Live by Night. The film revolves around the roaring twenties and an underground network of gangster-run speakeasies. Enjoying the spoils of this criminal underbelly, Joe Coughlin has turned his back on his strict upbringing. However, when he crosses the paths of a dangerous opponent, his world is turned upside down…
We know that Affleck thrives when working in his home town of Boston AND when he directs so this is very exciting. It also stars Elle Fanning, Brendan Gleeson, Chris Messino, Sienna Miller, and Chris Cooper so the cast is right on point.
