10 Incredible Movies About Boston You Need To See

As a major metro city, Boston is usually the setting for thrillers and dramas, rather than lighthearted romps.

From films based on Dennis Lehane novels – in which Boston is practically a character – to movies showing Fenway Park, this list features films shot in and around your favorite city.
