In Honor of the 2018 Boston Marathon

In case you missed it, the Boston Marathon was held today—congratulations to Desiree Linden for crushing it! But to be honest, we’re not the most sports-savvy bunch here at Fandor.

If you’re the same way, join us as we celebrate a great sporting achievement like Linden winning the 2018 Boston Marathon is the only way we know how: Watching movies.
