From an unfaithful husband in Gone Girl to a billionaire socialite and part-time superhero in Batman v Superman, Ben Affleck has played pretty powerful characters as of late. His latest role, however, is a departure from the dominant as he plays a despondent mathematics genius in action thriller ‘The Accountant’.
The film’s teaser trailer opens with a voiceover asking, “Can our son ever be normal? Define normal…Maybe he’s capable of much more than we know.”
Affleck plays Christian Wolff, a small-town accountant and freelance assassin loner diagnosed with a developmental disorder as a child. Directed by Gavin O’Connor from a screenplay by Bill Dubuque, ‘The Accountant’ also stars Anna Kendrick, J.K. Simmons, Jon Bernthal, Jeffrey Tambor and John Lithgow and has all the right ingredients to be an edge-of-your-seat must-see at the cinemas.
‘The Accountant’ hits theatres on October 14th of this year.
