Stronger Rated 15


Dir. David Gordon Green. USA, 2017. 1h 59m. Starring Jake Gyllenhaal, Tatiana Maslany, Miranda Richardson, Richard Lane Jr., Nate Richman, Lenny Clarke.

The true life story of Jeff Bauman, who lost both his legs during the 2013 Boston Marathon bombings. An emotionally profound, fact-based drama that avoids inspirational drama tropes by not shying away from its painfully traumatic source material.

'Gyllenhaal is effortlessly good here. It's an awards-worthy performance for a star who so often gets miscast and he sells both the good and the bad within Bauman.’ ★★★★ Benjamin Lee, The Guardian

'This isn't the positive movie many will want, but it's something better: a window into post-traumatic stress and exploded identity.’ ★★★★ Joshua Rothkopf, Time Out
