My Life in Ruins is a 2009 Hollywood movie that was set amidst many of the ruins of Ancient Greece. One of the sites happen to be Acropolis in Athens. The movie became the first Hollywood movie to be given permission to film at the Acropolis since Boy on a Dolphin (1957). The Greek Government, previously refused all prior requests as they were concerned about potential disruption to this sensitive site. They made an exception to this movie because they thought this movie would promote Greek culture.
