Oscar winner Ben Affleck (Argo) directed and stars in the dramatic crime thriller Live by Night. Affleck also wrote the screenplay, based on the award-winning best-seller by Dennis Lehane; it marks the second collaboration for the fellow Boston natives, following the acclaimed drama Gone Baby Gone.What you put out into this world will always come back to you, but it never comes back how you predict. Taking fatherly advice is not in Joe Coughlin's nature. Instead, the WWI vet is a self-proclaimed anti-establishment outlaw, despite being the son of the Boston Police... Deputy Superintendent. Joe's not all bad, though; in fact, he's not really bad enough for the life he's chosen. Unlike the gangsters he refuses to work for, he has a sense of justice and an open heart, and both work against him, leaving him vulnerable time and againin business and in love. Driven by a need to right the wrongs committed against him and those close to him, Joe heads down a risky path that goes against his upbringing and his own moral code. Leaving the cold Boston winter behind, he and his reckless crew turn up the heat in Tampa. And while revenge may taste sweeter than the molasses that infuses every drop of illegal rum he runs, Joe will learn that it comes at a price.Click Images to Enlarge [show more]

Ben Affleck writes, directs and stars in this crime drama based on Dennis Lehane's novel following a Prohibition Era gangster. Set during the 1920s and '30s, the film chronicles the criminal career of Joe Coughlin (Affleck), the son of Boston Irish police captain Thomas (Brendan Gleeson). After returning from fighting in World War I, Joe begins dabbling in heists and cons and enters the employ of Mob boss Albert White (Robert Glenister), while also having an affair with his girlfriend Emma (Sienna Miller). After a job goes wrong and he ends up in prison, Joe goes to work for White's rival Maso Pescatore (Remo Girone) who sends him to Tampa to run his own bootlegging racket. Settled in Florida, Joe sets about expanding his criminal empire and hopes to open a casino when gambling is eventually legalised.
