It’s Prohibition-era America. Joe Coughlin (Ben Affleck) is a family man, World War I veteran and son of the Boston Police deputy superintendent. He’s also a gangster, albeit one with a strict moral code. Nevertheless when he expands his operation from the frigid climes of Boston to the sultry Florida heat of Tampa, Joe is soon forced into extreme measures into order to ensure his own survival and that of his loved ones.

New Batman Ben Affleck is set to deliver another knockout directorial effort following his acclaimed trio of Gone Baby Gone, The Town and Argo. Working from the gritty novel by Dennis Lehane, it promises to blast away the winter cobwebs with a good-looking blend of historical authenticity and a starry cast also including Brendan Gleeson (Calvary), Zoe Saldana (Guardians of the Galaxy) and Elle Fanning (The Neon Demon).
