Actor and director Ben Affleck will attend a screening and discussion of his 2007 film Gone Baby Gone, and this year’s critically acclaimed The Town.
In The Town, masked armed robbers hold up a bank and briefly take employee Claire (Rebecca Hall) hostage, leading the gang’s leader Doug (Ben Affleck) to insinuate 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”. The Town also stars Jon Hamm and Blake Lively.
In the mesmerizing neo-noir Gone Baby Gone, two detectives search the most unsavory corners of Boston for an abducted four-year-old girl. With a screenplay by Ben Affleck and Aaron Stockard, and based on the Dennis Lehane novel, Gone Baby Gone boasts an outstanding ensemble cast: Casey Affleck, Michelle Monaghan, Ed Harris and Morgan Freeman.
There will be a discussion between films with actor-director Ben Affleck.
