Stronger is the inspiring real life story of Jeff Bauman, an ordinary man who captured the hearts of his city and the world to become a symbol of hope after surviving the 2013 Boston Marathon bombing.
On 15th April 2013 two bombs were detonated at the finish line of the Boston Marathon. Stronger focuses on the story of Jeff Bauman (Gyllenhaal) who underwent a double above the knee amputation after being caught in the blast.
Stronger is not an easy film to watch. From the off the tension builds to almost unbearable levels as Jeff heads to the finish line and it’s an agonising eternity before the bomb goes off. A standout scene is when Jeff is having his bandages removed for the first time.
