Live By Night

MA15+ Crime

Sorry, there are no upcoming session times for Live By Night at Dendy Newtown

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.  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.

Oscar winner Ben Affleck ("Argo ") directed, writes and stars in this dramatic crime thriller , 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." Co-starring with Affleck are Elle Fanning ("Maleficent"), Brendan Gleeson ("In the Heart of the Sea," the "Harry Potter" films), Chris Messina ("Argo," "The Mindy Project"), Sienna Miller ("American Sniper," "Foxcatcher"), Zoe Saldana ("Guardians of the Galaxy," "Avatar"), and Oscar winner Chris Cooper ("Adaptation," "The Town").
