The widow of one of the Boston bombers has complained she is unfairly portrayed in Mark Wahlberg’s new film. 
Patriots Day, which hit theaters Wednesday, is based on the tragic events of April 15, 2013, when bombs detonated at the finish line of the Boston Marathon, killing three and injuring hundreds.
At the time, Katherine Russell was still married to Tamerlan Tsarnaev when he and his brother Dzhokhar detonated the two pressure cooker bombs.
“I have no reason whatsoever to believe that anything about this aspect of the movie is inaccurate,” the FBI agent that headed the investigation said.
“It’s just not true,” lawyer Amato DeLuca told The Associated Press. “I have no objection to them making a movie. … What I quarrel with is the license they take in portraying Katie as someone who did not cooperate and try to save lives. She did everything she could.”
During a news conference last week, producer Michael Radutzky said the interrogation scene was “triple-sourced from multiple authorities” based on “significant reporting about her behavior, her affect, her manner and the words she had to say.” Director Peter Berg said there were “unresolved issues” with Russell, and it was hard to understand how someone living in a small apartment with the bombers could not have known what was going on.
