Ben Affleck was born August 15, 1972 in Berkeley, California. Ben was raised in Cambridge, Massachusetts, He was born to parents Tim Affleck, a social worker, who is now divorced from Ben's mother Chris Affleck a school teacher. Ben also has a younger brother, actor Casey Affleck, who was born in 1975. Ben is married to Jennifer Garner and they have 2 children. Ben’s first acting experience was in a Burger King commercial.
The Town took place in Charleston, Massachusetts there are a group of friends that are almost like family that are a team of bank robbers. Such robbers include friends Doug MacRay, James Coughlin, Albert 'Gloansy' Magloan and Desmond Elden. After the robbing of the Cambridge Merchants Bank, the four thieves blindfold and kidnap the manager Claire Keesey. They take her driver license; release her at an empty beach; and head to Charlestown, Boston. Doug MacRay gets close to Claire to know what she might have told to the FBI and they fall in love with each other. The team gets a plan together to rob the Boston Red Sox money from their stadium. The team dresses as BPD and after a long term of events the team has no other way out besides giving their lives up. Doug gets away without dyeing as the rest of his team was killed and he continues on and moves to Florida with Claire to start a new life.
The Town is worthy of an Academy Award because it is a very good story plot and the movie is very intense. Also it is not a movie where you know what is coming next, I would have never guessed that they were going to rob the Boston Red Sox or get killed at the end. In addition the movie has a main theme of robbing banks but in addition Doug has to deal with his love for Claire on the side of his “job” robbing banks.
Thank you very much for viewing my slide and I hope you consider watching The Town!
