THE TOWN
2010, Warner Brothers, 125 min, Dir: Ben Affleck

After masked armed robbers hold up a bank and briefly take employee Claire (Rebecca Hall) hostage, the gang's leader Doug (Ben Affleck) insinuates himself into her life to make sure she won't give any unwanted information to the Feds. The two begin a poignant if problematic romance, while Doug's dangerously volatile best friend (Jeremy Renner) keeps a watchful, malevolent eye on the couple. Ben Affleck excels as both director and lead in this gritty tale of South Boston hoods chasing the allusive Perfect Crime. With Jon Hamm and Blake Lively.
