Dear Hollywood: Leave Massachusetts Alone!
2010 was the worst year in history for the state of Massachusetts--on film anway.
If you live there, you obviously get pink slipped, become a bank robber, get unjustly convicted of something else, and emerge to become a boxer with a fucked-up family.
I am not making this up!
All in 2010, we had The Company Men, about scads of devastating layoffs in Massachusetts;
Conviction, a real-life story in which a guy is thrown in jail for no reason in, yep, Masachusetts;
The Town, about ruthless robberies that go on in Charlestown--you know, Massachusetts;
And The Fighter, dealing with various life-threatening dysfunctions happening in Lowell--and you know where that is.
Anyone ever actually been to Massachusetts?
Funny, I found it a little dullish.
