“Boston Strong” has become a famous slogan since the Boston Marathon bombings in 2013, but Beantown’s plucky spirit goes back centuries. The city was home to the original Tea Party uprising in which colonial rebels protested British taxes by dumping chests of tea into the sea. Hollywood has a special place in its heart for the setting. Besides the great accents, Boston possesses a distinctively gritty yet endearing authenticity not found anywhere else. Numerous films not only use the city as a backdrop but as the backbone for their atmosphere and plot.
