PATRIOTS DAY is the gripping account of the infamous Boston Marathon bombing and its extraordinary aftermath. Under the most extreme circumstances, Police Sergeant TOMMY SAUNDERS (Mark Wahlberg) joins forces with courageous survivors, heroic first responders and resolute investigators in a race against the clock to hunt down the bombers before they strike again.
Directed by acclaimed filmmaker Peter Berg, PATRIOTS DAY celebrates the spirit of a city that refused to give in to fear. Skillfully weaving together the stories of a group of disparate citizens like Special Agent RICHARD DESLAURIERS (Kevin Bacon), Police Commissioner ED DAVIS (John Goodman) and Sergeant JEFFREY PUGLIESE (J.K. Simmons), this visceral and unflinching chronicle of the days surrounding the tragedy captures the intensity and edge-of-the-seat suspense that riveted the world.
