The Town

Posted by lori . 6 Comments

The Town focuses on a group of career bank robbers from the Charlestown neighborhood of Boston, Massachusetts.  Ben Affleck plays the leader of the group, but when he falls for a girl who was a hostage during a previous robbery, he wants out.  As Affleck wants more and more to go straight, his history pulls just as strongly, the opposite way.  This film examines family (natural and created), the desire to leave a dead end life and the difficulty involved in changing.

      I’m so glad you’re back! and “Yes” I missed your entertaining comments. Can’t wait to hear what’s been going on with you on your blog on Monday.

    This one is already in my Netflix queue! I’m looking forward to it.

    BTW, I highly recommend The Snowman if you like books that are thrillers. You’d asked what I thought of it, and it is one heck of a page turner!

    Yes, and one of the others is available on the nook. The first two aren’t yet, but I’m hoping they may pop up. I have to check a few of my other e-book sites and see if they have them. I’ve lucked out and found a few of the books I wanted that weren’t on B&N there before. Harry Hole is a really compelling character!

      Because of your wickedness, last night while dutifully reading Middlemarch for my August book club meeting, I found myself downloading The Snowman.
