Live by Night
More About Live by Night

As his operation grows, Coughlin faces off against local gangsters, Klansmen, and religious evangelicals while he fights for control of Tampa's criminal underworld. Affleck wrote and directed this adaptation of Dennis Lehane's sprawling 2012 crime novel, which co-stars Scott Eastwood, Zoe Saldana, Elle Fanning, Sienna Miller, Brendan Gleeson, and Chris Cooper.

"On a purely technical level, Affleck is only getting better....Here he’s hired Robert Richardson as his cinematographer to capture both deep black shadows and streaming sunlight in the movie’s prohibition-era setting..." -- Grade: B - 12/27/2016 A.V. Club
"LIVE BY NIGHT is clearly Affleck’s love letter to classic pulp, and almost no noir touchstone goes unturned in its two-hour-plus run: sharp-suited mafiosi, hip-swinging vixens, bloody shoot-outs, double crosses." - 12/22/2016 Entertainment Weekly
