An immense performance from Jake Gyllenhaal powers the moving true story of Jeff Bauman, a survivor of the 2013 Boston Marathon bombing who lost both legs in the attack. After regaining consciousness in hospital, Bauman (Gyllenhaal) helps the police identify one of the terrorists. Celebrated by the media and thrust into the public eye, he becomes a symbol of hope for a nation in need of a hero – a status he doesn’t feel he deserves. With his girlfriend, Erin (Maslany), by his side, he begins the long process of rehabilitation, but struggles to cope with the giant spotlight cast upon him. Smartly directed and wonderfully acted, Stronger is a sensitive retelling of Bauman’s physical and emotional journey that also asks the question: what really makes a hero?
