“I’m gonna be there at the finish line for you. I’m gonna make a big sign for you.” “He doesn’t show up for anything then he shows up for.” The Boston Marathon Bombing drama ‘Stronger’ recounts the true story of Jeff Bauman (Jake Gyllenhaal), a 27-year-old, working-class Boston man who was at the marathon to try to win back his ex-girlfriend Erin. Waiting for her at the finish line when the blast occurs, he loses both his legs in the attack, which killed three people and injuring more than 260 others.
“There was an explosion and your legs, they’re gone bro.” After regaining consciousness in the hospital, Jeff is able to help law enforcement identify one of the bombers, but his own battle has just begun. He tackles months of physical and emotional rehabilitation with the unwavering support of Erin and his family.
“You’re trying to make a hero out of me.” “You need to tell your family what’s going on with you.” Loss Changes Us, Tragedy Tests Us. Strength Defines Us. Directed by David Gordon Green and written by John Pollono, based on the book of the same name by Jeff Bauman and Bret Witter, ‘Stronger’ tells the story of survivor Bauman (Jake Gyllenhaal) who adjusts to his new life after losing his legs in the terrorist attack. “You remind me of my son, he died. Helping you made me feel like I can help my son. And for that I am grateful.”
“You showed the world that they can’t break us no matter what the hell they do.” Starring Jake Gyllenhaal, Tatiana Maslany, Miranda Richardson and Clancy Brown the film is scheduled to be released on September 22, 2017, by Lionsgate and Roadside Attractions.
