IGN: Live by Night Review

Recommended Posts

Live by Night opens in L.A. and New York City on Christmas Day and expands into wide release January 13, 2017.

Oscar-winning filmmaker Ben Affleck reunites with Gone Baby Gone author (and fellow Masshole) Dennis Lehane for the period crime drama Live by Night, an ambitious but unwieldy adaptation of the latter’s novel of the same name. Live by Night is arguably director Affleck's first merely good film instead of a great one, which means he still has one hell of a batting average among actor-directors.

This sprawling saga follows World War I vet-turned-criminal Joe Coughlin (Affleck), who is carrying on an affair with Emma Gould (Sienna Miller), the moll of an Irish mobster at war with Boston's Italian Mafia. When that all goes violently awry, Joe finds himself in the employ of mafioso Maso Pescatore (Remo Girone), an act of submission Joe never thought he'd commit again after following others in the Great War.
