At the Movies With Peter Travers: 'The Town' Has Everything


This week, Peter Travers implores you to check out The Town . Ben Affleck directed and starred in the film, which centers on a group of bank robbers in Charleston, a neighborhood near Boston. While disguised during a heist, Affleck's Doug falls in love with a bank manager, played by Rebecca Hall, and later pursues her with the mask off, much to the dismay of his partners in crime. The film also features strong performances by Jeremy Renner and Jon Hamm as FBI agent Frawley. "This movie has atmosphere, it has action, it has character, it has a love story," says Travers. Check it out when it hits theaters this Friday.
