Trivia

Many minor characters in the film are played by themselves, including most of the medical professionals, who re-enacted the real events in unscripted scenes. Dr. Jeffrey Kalish removes the bandages from Jake Gyllenhaal's legs just as he had from Jeff Bauman's, and five members of the Martino family play themselves at United Prosthetics. Others include the rehab techs and nurses at Spalding Rehab, and first responder Jerry Kissel. See more »

Goofs

When Jeff first closes the shower curtain it hangs on the outside of the tub, but when Erin leaves it's on the inside without either one moving it. See more »

worth a watch
24 December 2017 | by See all my reviews

Even though there are some scenes at the end featuring 'inspirational' scenes the film mostly focuses on the recovery of the character where he is never as strong as everyone thinks him to be and he doesn't express anything to most of them either. With strong ensemble cast Stronger manages to be worth a watch even though it has a derivative plot and structure.
