Director: Ben Affleck
Starring: Ben Affleck, Jeremy Renner, John Hamm, Blake Lively, and Rebecca Hall
Oscar winner Ben Affleck’s career has had its ups and downs over the years. He entered the national spotlight with Good Will Hunting. Since then it has been very hit and miss for Mr. Affleck. There have been highs: Dogma and Shakespeare in Love, but more often than not there have been lows: Forces of Nature, The Sum of All Fears, Surviving Christmas, and Pearl Harbor. With The Town, I can at least now forgive Ben Affleck for his string of flops. In 2007 Ben directed Gone Baby Gone, a drama with well crafted character development. The Town has cemented his reputation as a solid director but also restored my faith in his acting ability.
