I know, I know, Stephanie Pratt is a reality TV hasbeen, but hey she was at the “Live By Night” premiere held at BFI Southbank in London earlier in the week. She isn’t a cast member, so it seems like she just enjoys playing dress up attending A-list premieres.
The new crime drama has “Ben Affleck” written all over it. Not only does he star in the film, but he’s also credited as the writer, director & producer. Other cast members include Elle Fanning, Brendan Gleeson, Chris Messina, Sienna Miller, Zoe Saldana, and Chris Cooper.
Here’s more about the film:
Set in the 1920s and 1930s, the story follows Joe Coughlin, the prodigal son of a Boston police captain. Joe is a World War I veteran of Irish descent who is in love with Emma Gould (Sienna Miller), mistress of the notorious gangster Albert White (Robert Glenister), who is the boss of the Irish Gang of Boston. Joe’s father, Thomas Coughlin, disapproves of Emma. Joe and Emma decide to move to California to escape the wrath of White, but to their misfortune the head of Albert’s rival, Italian Mafia Maso Pescatore (Remo Girone), finds out about their affair and blackmails Joe to kill Albert. Joe refuses, as he was done with killing after the war, to which Maso threatens to inform Albert. Joe commits a bank heist with his partner Dion Bartolo (Chris Messina), during which three police officers are killed in the ensuing chase. On the day of their planned escape, Albert catches Joe (following a trap created by him and his goons that involved Emma betraying him) and nearly beats him to death before the police arrive and arrest him for the policemen’s murders.
