Based on Chuck Hogan’s novel, Prince of Thieves, Ben Affleck’s The Town is about Doug MacRay (Affleck), a thief who develops feelings for a bank manager involved in one of his bank heists, all while a FBI agent (Jon Hamm) attempts to bring him and his team down.

Besides Ben Affleck and Jon Hamm, the cast includes Blake Lively, Chris Cooper, Jeremy Renner, and Rebecca Hall.

The Town received very good reviews.

“ Love him in this film or not, one thing is crystal clear: Ben Affleck definitely knows what he’s doing behind the camera.” – Karina Mitchell, CBS News

The Town, a fast-paced, character-driven heist movie that combines robberies with romance and solidifies Affleck’s reputation as an actor with a genuine gift for directing.” – Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times

Read my own review of the film, and check out my coverage of The Town’s red carpet premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival.

Check out the trailer below.

The Town is rated R for strong violence, pervasive language, some sexuality and drug use.

A committed soap opera freak--err, fan, Rolla Bahsous was thrilled to begin her professional writing career writing about everything soaps. But her love for television did not stop at daytime! Rolla is excited to be using her guilty pleasure, following celebrity gossip, at Rolla's had a few encounters with her favorite celebs, including a fingertip brush and a "Take care, sweetheart" from Michael Buble, as well as a flying kiss from Nick Carter - in both incidents Rolla forgot how to breathe. Rolla's University of Toronto degree in communications, political science, and theater is evidence of her diverse interests. When she is not writing, Rolla enjoys her obsession with fairies, coffee shops, and working out, (while watching television, of course!).
