The Town

The Town

Ever since Ben Affleck took the stage with fellow Bostonian Matt Damon to accept the Screenplay Oscar for Good Will Hunting, the world's been waiting on a repeat appearance, and The Town ($23) is it. Set in the Charlestown area of Boston, this bank heist masterpiece features Affleck as co-writer, director, and lead, helped along by terrific turns from Jeremy Renner, Rebecca Hall, and Jon Hamm, and a story — based on Chuck Hogan's Prince of Thieves — that provides much more than crime and car chases.
