• Live By Night details

Live By Night Synopsis

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 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. 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.

Ben Affleck is on one hell of a roll as a director. The acting veteran has now made three films and all of them have performed exceptionally well with critics (and we'll have to see how Argo does at the box office this weekend). Because of this success it should come as a shock to nobody that he is interested in getting back to the director's chair, and while a number of projects have already been thrown his way, it would appear he's diving back into the world of Dennis Lehane novels.

Mystic River. Shutter Island. Gone Baby Gone.
