The Departed. Mystic River. Good Will Hunting. These and many other movies have long taken advantage of Boston as a cinematic backdrop. Big Screen Boston is the first book to take a comprehensive look at these movies, from Hollywood's visits to the city to the gritty homegrown "Beanstreets" movies of the late 1970s and the varied crop of 1990s independent films--more than 250 movies in all. Boston is ready for its close-up. Original.
