Live by Night (2016) – in cinemas from Friday, January 20
Live by Night is a 2016 American dramatic crime thriller written, directed, co-produced by and starring Oscar winner Ben Affleck, based on the 2012 award-winning novel of the same name by Dennis Lehane. The film also stars Elle Fanning, Brendan Gleeson, Chris Messina, Sienna Miller, Zoe Saldana and Chris Cooper.
Set in the 1920s and 1930s, the story follows Joe Coughlin, the prodigal son of the Boston Police superintendent. After moving to Ybor City, Tampa, Florida, he becomes a bootlegger and a rum-runner and, later, a notorious gangster.
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 again – in 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. But even among criminals there are rules, and Joe breaks a big one: crossing a powerful mob boss by stealing his money and his moll.
