Ben Affleck directed and stars in this acclaimed thriller as a Boston bank robber who finds himself trying to get out of the game. Doug MacRay (Affleck) comes from a long line of crooks, but his heart just isn't in it anymore--it's with a young woman that his best friend and loose-cannon partner James took as a hostage after a heist. But in a town that will never let him go willingly, Doug must navigate a dangerous series of complications, including a determined FBI agent, a cold-blooded crime boss, and the increasingly unhinged James. "Affleck delivers another potent, serious-minded slice of pulp" (Variety).
Co-starring Rebecca Hall, Jon Hamm, Best Supporting Actor Oscar®-nominee Jeremy Renner, Blake Lively, Titus Welliver with Pete Postlethwaite and Chris Cooper. Directed by Ben Affleck; screenplay by Peter Craig and Ben Affleck & Aaron Stockard, based on the novel "Prince of Thieves" by Chuck Hogan.
