The 44 Must See Spring Movie Releases


Ben Affleck had a tremendous 2016 in film with Batman v Superman, The Accountant and then Live By Night. Affleck directs and stars in Live By Night and does a really nice job at both. The story follows Boston gangster Joe Coughlin (Affleck) that sets up shop in Florida to run his business. This film has a lot going on and touches on different topics like Prohibition, interracial relationships, Ku Klux Klan all in the backdrop of mobster life. I found the movie to be entertaining with timely action sequences. Affleck surrounds himself with a nice mix of supporting talent such as Zoe Saldana, Sienna Miller, Brendan Gleeson and Elle Fanning. If you’re looking for a good crime drama with some heart, Live By Night is definitely the movie to see. Affleck delivers, yet again.

Live By Night is out now on Blu-ray, DVD and Digital HD
