Stronger

Please Note: This film is no longer showing at Railroad Square Cinema

“Solid, straightforward and touching” (Hollywood Reporter), STRONGER is a genuinely “uplifting” (Variety) powerhouse, based on a true story. STRONGER is the inspiring story of Jeff Bauman, an ordinary man who captured the hearts of his city and the world to become the symbol of hope following the infamous 2013 Boston Marathon bombing. Jeff (a fantastic Jake Gyllenhaal, who might well get an Oscar nomination here), is 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. R. 116 Min.
