Jake Gyllenhaal is Oscar worthy in “Stronger”

He has an Oscar nomination, but has been snubbed a few times since then, most notably for Nightcrawler. On Friday, Gyllenhaal turns in one of his very best and most awards friendly performances yet with Stronger, a biopic that manages to subvert the expectations of the genre.

With a September 22nd release date currently scheduled, fall festivals may not fully be in play, but awards possibilities just might. More on that in a bit, and of course the Trailer will be found below, but first…it’s analysis time! The film is a presumably feel good story in the end, centering on Jeff Bauman (Jake Gyllenhaal), a victim of the Boston Marathon bombing in 2013. There to support his partner Erin Hurley (Tatiana Maslany), who is running in the race, he’s seriously injuring »
