Ben Affleck’s drama, The Town, opens nationwide this Friday September 17th.
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

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