11 Wicked Good Movies About Massachusetts Made In Massachusetts
It’s National Movie Night and what better way to celebrate than watching movies about Massachusetts made in Massachusetts?*
OK OK. When it comes to the best movies made in Massachusetts, a few gems shine brighter than the rest.
“Good Will Hunting” catapulted Matt Damon and Ben Affleck to stardom, showcasing their incredible talent and the beauty of Boston.
“The Departed” masterfully weaves a thrilling tale of crime and corruption, set against the gritty backdrop of South Boston.
And let’s not forget “The Social Network,” a gripping exploration of the creation of Facebook, filmed in Harvard’s hallowed halls.
These movies capture the essence of Massachusetts, captivating audiences with their compelling stories and unforgettable performances.
But they aren’t the ONLY Massachusetts movies with Fenway flavor!
Not every wicked good Massachusetts movie needs a big-name cast or a mobster pulling the strings.
Our state is bursting with untapped potential and stories that’ll make your heart skip a beat. Let’s celebrate the diversity of our local talent and give them the recognition they deserve!
(Disclaimer: Some of these movies have the WORST Boston accents imaginable. I’m talking to YOU JEFF BRIDGES AND DIANE LANE. But I still like them because, well, I like seeing my hometown on the big screen!)
(Disclaimer #2: I included “Love Story” because of the location, not the message. Love Story is a sappy snoozefest with more cheese than a fondue party. If you’re into cringe-worthy dialogue and predictable plot twists, this movie’s got you covered. Grab some tissues for your tears of boredom and save yourself the agony.)
So, on National Movie Night, skip the predictable blockbusters and indulge in Massachusetts-made flicks. Immerse yourself in the sights and sounds of our beloved state, support local talent, and savor every moment.
These films are like a lobster roll for your soul – uniquely Massachusetts and oh-so-satisfying.
