STRONGER
2017, Roadside Attractions, 119 min, USA, Dir: David Gordon Green

Filled with raw emotion, humanity and humor, this is the inspirational real-life story of the man who became the living embodiment of “Boston Strong” following the 2013 Boston Marathon bombing. Jake Gyllenhaal stars as Jeff Bauman, a 27-year-old, working-class Boston man who was at the marathon to try to win back his ex-girlfriend Erin (Tatiana Maslany). Waiting for her at the finish line when the blast occurs, he loses both his legs in the attack. After regaining consciousness in the hospital, Jeff is able to help law enforcement identify one of the bombers, but his own battle has just begun. He tackles months of physical and emotional rehabilitation with the unwavering support of Erin and his family. It is Jeff’s deeply personal account of the heroic journey that tests a family’s bond, defines a community’s pride and inspires his inner courage to overcome devastating adversity. With Miranda Richardson.
