About the Movie
Professional strongman Stanless Steel---- "The Strongest Man in the World (at Bending Steel and Metal)"-- is the only man alive who can bend a U.S. penny with his fingers. But the world around Stan--- his aging parents, his alcoholic brother, his beautiful announcer/girlfriend, and even Stan himself-- are not so malleable. And what begins as a loveable portrait of a unique outsider soon becomes a deeply universal, funny, and poignant story about people trying to find reshape their lives through the scraps and dented dreams of another time.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: An outsider tale of unforced rawness and lilting poignancy.
Fresh: By the end, you don't entirely understand either of these people, but you come to understand why they need each other.
Fresh: Strongman is a tantalizing example of the kind of documentary I find engrossing: A film about an unusual person that invites us into the mystery of a human life.
Fresh: A warts-and-all documentary from first-time director Zachary Levy that moves in close and stays there.
More than I expected
At first I wasn't sure what to expect out of this film... needless to say, it was epic. Sometimes comic, sometimes tragic.. thought provoking throughout.. gotta watch it again!
Such a great film. Really interesting story and very very well made. Highly recommend!
I had the opportunity to screen this film at a festival and it was amazing. The film took me on such an emotional roller coaster of a journey. I loved it!
