While he may have been spending most of his time inhabiting Batman's cape and cowl recently, Ben Affleck has found space in his schedule to direct and star in Live By Night.
Affleck's latest adaptation of Dennis Lehane's work finds characters from one of the writer's previous books, The Given Day, and tracks them into the Prohibition era. Our main focus is Joe Coughlin (Affleck), a police captain's son who, with his brother Danny (Scott Eastwood) finds himself caught up in organised crime as part of a rum smuggling organisation that transports liquor from Cuba to Boston via Florida.
Brendan Gleeson (Calvary) is Affleck and Eastwood's father, part of an ensemble that also includes Sienna Miller (Foxcatcher) as Emma Gould, who Coughlin falls for, but who also happens to be the daughter of his mobster boss. Then there is Zoe Saldana (Guardians Of The Galaxy) as Graciella Suarez, part of the Floridian crime structure and Elle Fanning (Maleficent) playing sheriff's daughter Loretta Figgis, an aspiring actress who finds herself in a world of trouble.
Live By Night is out in cinemas now.
