Departed screening

  • The Departed was recently screened for the police officers who both assisted with the film and appeared in the movie. Details at the Telegram, including:

    The film has conferred a feeling of community between Hollywood and Worcester. Ms. Marrone said Martin Sheen has played golf at Wachusett Country Club twice since the movie project began. And within an hour of giving birth to her second child, Maj. Duffy’s daughter, Kim Henrickson, received a congratulatory phone call in her room at St. Vincent Hospital from Matt Damon, who was at the post-premiere party in New York.

    Also sharing Friday night in what she considered "one big family day," was state police Sgt. Darlene DeCaire, Maj. Duffy’s girlfriend, who also was in on the arrest of Mr. Flemmi. She currently is in the state police Violent Fugitive Apprehension Section.

    Maj. Duffy recalled a moment one day before the cameras rolled when Matt Damon said to him, "Duff, Duff, watch this." With camera’s rolling, Damon’s character flirtatiously called another character "Darlene," which stayed in the film.
