About the Movie

Inspired by the true story, Stronger stars Jake Gyllenhaal as Jeff Bauman, a working-class Bostonian who was at the 2013 marathon when the bomb blast occurred and he tragically lost both of his legs. After regaining consciousness, Jeff was able to help law enforcement identify one of the bombers, but his own battle had just begun.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: Kudos to a brilliant, hilariously unexpected performance from Jake Gyllenhaal in a powerhouse biopic about Boston bombing victim Jeff Bauman that doesn't sugarcoat the man's story - and that makes all the difference – Peter Travers, Rolling Stone, Sep 22, 2017

Fresh: Green's film has a tense, nervy energy, most of which seems to glow from Gyllenhaal's very core. – Stephanie Zacharek, TIME Magazine, Sep 28, 2017

Fresh: "Stronger" always feels right in the moment, solidified by an outstanding central performance by Gyllenhaal, and some wonderful ensemble work, especially the actors just below the top billing. – Peter Hartlaub, San Francisco Chronicle, Sep 27, 2017

Fresh: I'm a sucker for these survival stories that show the best side of man's humanity, and Gyllenhaal makes this one a stronger achievement than most. – Rex Reed, New York Observer, Sep 22, 2017

This movie is heavy!

This movie is heavy, almost emotionally draining. I went in completely blind not knowing what to expect be it a feel good story of a come back, or a depressing story of a broken man, and a broken city after the bombing(s) the movie is definitely worth a watch but be warned it's not so much feel good story. It's kind of depressing.

jake and tatiana both deserve an oscar!

their emotional performances deserve that award

Excellent movie!

Such a inspirational true story about a man who overcame adversity after such a horrific event. I can’t image life after a tragedy such as this. A must see!
