Gone Baby Gone | 2007
The family home of the missing Amanda McCready is 21 Pond Street, in North Dorchester, south of Boston. As well as author Lehane, Leonard Nimoy and brothers Mark and Donnie Wahlberg are natives of Dorchester.
About half a mile to the southwest, Cataloni's, 10 Hancock Street, is used as the scuzzy bar where Kenzie and Gennaro are threatened by unhappy locals when they begin to ask questions about the disappearance.
Some way to the northwest, at the Silver Slipper Restaurant, 2387 Washington Street, Kenzie and Gennaro meet up with Detective Remy Bressant (Ed Harris), who's obliged reluctantly to provide the pair with details of the missing girl.
When it turns out the girl's mother has been involved in stealing money from a drug lord, the case begins to get murkier.
The old quarry where the abducted girl is to be exchanged for ransom money is Quincy Quarries, 93 Ricciuti Drive, in Quincy, a few miles south of Boston. The deal goes horribly wrong and Amanda seems to have been dumped in the flooded quarry. Actually, the quarry isn’t flooded – the water was added digitally. The vertical rock faces provide a popular spot for climbing.
The funeral of the shot policeman, at which investigator Kenzie begins to have doubts about detective Bressant, is held at Mount Auburn Cemetery, 580 Mount Auburn Street.
Kenzie arranges to talk with cop Devin (Michael Kenneth Williams) at the Chart House Restaurant, 60 Long Wharf on the Boston waterfront, where he realises that Bressant has not been entirely truthful.
