Synopsis

Crime drama double bill. In 'The Town' (2010), directed by Ben Affleck and based on the award-winning novel, 'Prince of Thieves', by Chuck Hogan, Doug MacRay (Affleck) is one of four masked criminals who rob a bank. He falls for one of the bank workers, Claire (Rebecca Hall), who is distressed after the robbery. Unaware Doug was one of the robbers, she reciprocates his feelings. Can Doug keep up the facade or will the law catch up with him? In 'Heat' (1995) Robert De Niro and Al Pacino face off as thief and policeman, both obsessed with their professions. Neil McCauley (De Niro) is the criminal mastermind in a gang of professional thieves (which includes Tom Sizemore and Val Kilmer), who unwittingly attract the attention of super-cop Vincent Hanna (Pacino). Hanna will not stop until he catches the gang in the midst of committing a crime, an obsession that alienates him from those he is close to.
