I think this will prove to be the sleeper hit movie of the year.
certainly better than "The Invention of Lying"

Try getting tickets to any of these early screenings held in Lowell. This will be political hackarama at it's best.

I think this story should be told, I think when good comes out of anything there is a lesson to be learned...Micky Wards passion for fighting, training and being a family man gave us all some sort of pride in that error... if you lived in the area through that time you would be, (as I am) waiting anxiously for the movie to come out.

I agree. I remember Lowell during that era. Was a young married person with my first house in the Cupples Square area. Back when the Square had a pizza shop, convenience store, drug store, packie and a formal wear store too. Can't forget Capt. Johns and the Highland Tap.

This movie will be about a man with guts, heart and bravery, unlike a coward like you who disparages an entire city while hiding behind internet anonimity.

I remember when School Ties was filmed in Lowell. I'm a Lowell loser and a complete low life and I was jumping up in down in my seat when they showed shots of Lowell.I have no class at all and will probably display my terrible upbringing when this movie comes out. CAN'T WAIT.

Don't forget to perform the official city symbol of Lowell: sneeze LOUDLY, don't cover you mouth and yell "sh*t !!" at the end.

I can't help but agree. As noted above the fix will be in to get tickets. It will be the all time "who you know" hackarama fest.

That explains why O'Keefe was walking the station halls shadow boxing while whispering "I coulda been a contender" and " I was soooooo close, I had that oscar". Damn Dickie.
