Joe Coughlin (Ben Affleck), the son of a Boston police lieutenant, moves to Florida during the Prohibition era to become a bootlegger. As his operation grows, Coughlin faces off against local gangsters, Klansmen, and religious evangelicals while he fights for control of Tampa's criminal underworld. Affleck wrote and directed this adaptation of Dennis Lehane's sprawling 2012 crime novel, which co-stars Scott Eastwood, Zoe Saldana, Elle Fanning, Sienna Miller, Brendan Gleeson, and Chris Cooper.
