"Patriot's Day" test-screened a few days ago

Image result for patriot's day movie

The Boston Marathon bombings as directed by Peter Berg. Word of mouth says this could be great, but we will have to wait and see. There are no festival showings as we speak. The news that Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross will be scoring it brings additional street cred to the film.

A reader has sent me his thoughts on Peter Berg's "Patriot's Day" which was test screened last Tuesday:

"Had the opportunity to attend the very first audience screening for the upcoming film "Patriots Day" last Tuesday. I know this film isn't on a lot of people's radars, but I really think it should be. Had to sign an NDA so I can't say much about it, but what I can say is that the film is absolutely fantastic and is also very respectful to the source material. Definitely going to be a contender for "Best Picture", which goes perfect with it's late December/early January release date. I might go as far to even say that it's the best film I've seen all year (until I see Moonlight lol)."

I do like the fact that this is being scored by Ross and Reznor, but the trailer left me with a lackluster impression, so much so that I took it off my Oscar predictions (HERE)
