Deets: Please join us for a rare and intimate conversation with Academy Award-winning writer, director and actor Ben Affleck and New York Times seasoned journalist Chip McGrath. The duo will discuss Mr. Affleck’s upcoming film, “Live by Night,” an epic, unflinching tale of the making and unmaking of a gangster in the Prohibition era of the Roaring Twenties. In addition to writing the screenplay and starring in the film, “Live by Night” marks Mr. Affleck’s much anticipated return to the director’s chair. Don’t miss this exceptional opportunity to hear Mr. Affleck discuss his creative process, his method for unearthing the dichotomy of the film’s characters, and why he was drawn to a story about moral ambiguity, justice and revenge. “Live by Night” is in theaters December 25th, 2016.
