Marathon: The Patriot’s Day Bombing. FREE FILM, courtesy of HBO. Incidents of ordinary bystanders stepping up and being heroic are as much of a constant in Marathon as stories of the exceptional resilience the survivors exhibited in the face of debilitating injury. Proving not for the first time, that the worst of times can bring out the best, is one of the things this strong documentary is all about. –Kenneth Turan, LA Times.
