As is my wont, I'm watching movies on the road in the hotel room. The first night I was here I saw The Town, which is a very good cops and robbers movie set in Charlestown, MA (part of Boston) directed (and partly written by) Ben Affleck, who is actually (and surprisingly) turning into quite a good director. (He directed his brother, Casey Affleck, in a terrific movie a couple of years ago called Gone Baby Gone.)
Anyway, the love interest in The Town is played by Rebecca Hall, a young English actress whom I first saw in a funny little movie called Starter for 10. A very cute girl who exudes intelligence -- just like I like 'em, as my wife proves.
