Patriots Day has been in theatres for under a month and has already brought in more than $30 million. WHY? Because it’s a story about real-life, everyday heroes. You know, the men and women who are often overlooked until tragedy strikes. The people who have devoted their lives to helping others. The people that provide stability and direction when disaster strikes. The people I am in awe of and honored to work with.If you aren’t a movie goer, the film focuses on the tragic events of April 15, 2013, when two bombs explode during the Boston Marathon, which is held each year on Patriots Day. In the aftermath of the attack, police Sgt. Tommy Saunders (Mark Wahlberg), FBI Special Agent Richard DesLauriers (Kevin Bacon) and Commissioner Ed Davis (John Goodman) join courageous survivors, first responders and other investigators in a race against the clock to hunt down the suspects and bring them to justice. All working tirelessly to answer the questions:
- Who did this?
- Where are they?
- Are there more bombs?
While Patriots Day is successful at focusing on the real-life people—first responders, overwhelmed emergency room doctors, local policemen and FBI agents, those manning the phones for citizen tips, investigators analyzing mounds of video footage you have to wonder how realistic is this? Well the only person who can accurately answer that is someone who lived it.
