WED­NES­DAY

THE TOWN

Sunday Tasmanian - Tassie Living - - WEEK IN MOVIES -

6.20PM, FOX­TEL THRILLER

★★★★

Ben Affl eck plays a thief who be­gins a re­la­tion­ship with a woman held hostage dur­ing a heist. How­ever, if you as­sume that The Town is go­ing to sud­denly shrivel down into a reg­u­lar doomed love- story sce­nario, you will be sorely mis­taken. The wild card in the pack here is Affl eck’s ex­em­plary work as di­rec­tor and co- writer, which can be likened to Martin Scors­ese’s award- win­ning eff orts on The De­parted.
