What the Hell Is This Suit, Ben Affleck?

A lush trailer just dropped for Live By Night, a 1920s gangster movie and Ben Affleck’s directorial follow-up to the Oscar-winning Argo. Quick question: What the hell is that suit?


The trailer comes via the Wall Street Journal, which explains the movie “is set during the Prohibition era in the 1920s and it depicts a power struggle between Affleck’s character, Joe Coughlin, and a crime boss.” Lots of Boston. Clearly Ben goes for broody and moody when selecting film projects.

That suit just looks so familiar. Perhaps I’m thinking of Warren Beatty in Dick Tracy.


There’s something else.

What is it?

I’m sure it’ll come to me.

Oh, yes.

Sure hope that’s just the lighting!

The 1920's has always been a historical period that interested me, but most of the films about it seem to involve gangsters in some way. What does a gal have to do to get a good Scott and Zelda Fitgerald biopic? I'm too damn busy to write it myself.
