This HNM is ‘Live by Night’ another Ben Affleck special, featuring prohibition America, love, booze and organised crime. Directed, co-produced and starring Affleck we potentially have another Argo on our hands!
Check out the ‘Live by Night’ Trailer!
The film is based on a book written by Dennis Lehane with the same title ‘Live by Night’ that won him the Edgar Award in 2013 for novel of the year. The story follows the main character Joe Coughlin (played by Ben Affleck) living in 1920s Boston moving to Ybor City, Florida on orders of a gangster to eventually become a notorious gangster himself.
Affleck is joined by Sienna Miller, Brendon Gleeson, Elle Fanning and Chris Messina to create an all-star cast. Miller who becomes Coughlin’s love interest is playing the role of Emma Gould, who works for a rival gangster Albert White (played by Robert Glenister).
If the trailer is anything to go by, the movie is going to be a action packed ride with tense moments as Affleck is submerged into this life of crime. With violence and drama erupting at every turn, it looks like the movie will not disappoint – especially as Warner Bros are putting more faith in Affleck’s directing than ever before by releasing the movie in the festive season!
With machine guns and fast paced explosions this crime thriller is definitely the first movie we should be checking out on 13th January 2017!
