Live By Night
(2017)

Joe Coughlin (Ben Affleck) is a WWI veteran who falls into a life of crime after falling in love with Emma Gould (Sienna Miller), mistress of gangster Albert White (Robert Glenister). After being betrayed by Emma, Joe is sent to jail for 3 years after a bank robbery he was involved in causes the deaths of 3 officers.

Upon his release, Joe works with Italian gangster Maso Pescatore to get revenge on Albert. Joe moves to Tampa with his partner Dion Bartolo to set up a rum business. Once that succeeds, he starts going for a gambling and drug business. Joe falls in love with Graciella Suarez (Zoe Saldana) and battles the KKK when they try to take down his business.

The gambling business fails when the police chief's daughter Loretta (Elle Fanning) starts preaching against sinful desires. Joe is then forced to go up against the two gangsters that got him into the criminal life, leading to him and his men to kill Albert and Maso.

Joe's life goes back to normal, but Graciella is killed by the chief after going insane from Loretta committing suicide. Joe kills the chief and buries his wife in Cuba. He promises to do right by their son from then on.
