On April 15, 2013, during one of the world’s largest celebrations of togetherness and perseverance, The Boston Marathon, two men set off bombs to hurt civilians.
‘Patriots Day’ is based on a the true stories of police from that day and the film follows some of Boston’s finest, including Sgt. Tommy Saunders (Mark Wahlberg), Sgt Jeffrey Puglies (J.K. Simmons), Commissioner Ed Davis (John Goodman), and FBI SAC Richard DesLauriers (Kevin Bacon) from the morning of the run, the events of the Marathon, and the search and capture of the men responsible for the heinous act. The film is by Peter Berg, the same Director that Wahlberg has worked with on his films Deepwater Horizon and Lone Survivor, and the film is scored by Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross.
