What’s It About?
Stronger is the inspiring true story of Jeff Bauman, an ordinary man who captured the heart of his city and the world to become the symbol of hope following the tragic 2013 Boston Marathon bombing. Jake Gyllenhaal stars as Jeff, a 27-year-old working-class Boston man, who was at the marathon to try and 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. Filled with raw emotion, humanity and humour, Stronger is the inspirational real-life story of the man who became the living embodiment of “Boston Strong”. The film also stars Academy Award nominee Miranda Richardson and is directed by David Gordon Green.
This film releases at select cinemas on Friday, 22 September 2017.
