The 1973 film The Friends of Eddie Coyle was not a box office smash but it became a cult classic and was particularly popular among film makers and film critics. The movie may have been the first to depict Boston as a working class and violent city but it certainly was not the last. With Academy award-winning films including The Departed, Mystic River, Goodwill Hunting, and Manchester by the Sea, one might say there is a gritty Boston genre. Our discussion will explore what these films say about Boston and what the city represents nationally.

This is the first program in a series of three conversations in partnership with Brattle Theater and Emerson College. Please note, this is an online program.
