Last fall, The Town — the smart, suspenseful thriller about Beantown cohps and robbahs directed by and starring Ben Affleck — was the talk of Hollywood. The movie follows two Boston natives, played by Affleck and Jeremy Renner, who have been committing crimes together (sometimes while wearing incredibly creepy rubber nun masks) almost as long as they’ve been pals. (Their ruthless florist boss was played by actor Pete Postlethwaite, who passed away yesterday at 64.) But Affleck’s world changes forever when he finds himself falling for a girl he once held hostage during a bank robbery (Rebecca Hall) — even as he agrees to pull one last heist on Fenway Park with Renner.
In honor of the film’s recent DVD release, we’re giving away 25 copies of The Town on DVD. The prizes are courtesy of Warner Bros. and are available while supplies last.
