| So nice to see local sites used in such an important film.
My dad, who started work at the PNSY in 1978 was given the option of being an extra in the film but declined. I own a 22 year tour company in the area as a Portsmouth native and have been dying to review the film. Here are some of the sites used with specifics as I can remember them:

1. Kidurka and wife outside the car. Wild Rose Lane, New Castle, NH. 2. Opening sequence/soccer game. New Castle Common, New Castle, NH. 3. Most "prison" footage shot at the same, Portsmouth Naval Prison. 4. Likely the Decisive CG Cutter, anchored there at Fort Constitution. 5. The Periscope or Navy Yard Paper has more details.......
