Live By Night Synopsis

Live by Night is set in the roaring `20s when Prohibition hasn’t stopped the flow of booze in an underground network of gangster-run speakeasies. The opportunity to gain power and money is there for any man with enough ambition and nerve and Joe Coughlin, the son of the Boston Police Superintendent, long ago turned his back on his strict upbringing for the spoils of being an outlaw. 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. The fiery affair ends in tragedy, setting Joe on a path of revenge, ambition, romance and betrayal that propels him out of Boston and up the ladder of Tampa’s steamy rum-running underworld.

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.
