Based on the inspiring true story of Jeff Bauman, a survivor of the Boston Marathon bombing, Jake Gyllenhaal (Nightcrawler) and Tatiana Maslany (TV’s Orphan Black) star in the drama Stronger.

Gyllenhaal’s Bauman was 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. Jeff’s deeply personal journey tests a family’s bond and defines a community’s pride as he overcomes adversity to become the living embodiment of “Boston Strong.”

Based on the New York Times best-selling memoir by Bauman and Bret Witter, Stronger is directed by David Gordon Green (Our Brand Is Crisis) and co-stars Miranda Richardson (Churchill) and Clancy Brown (The Shawshank Redemption).

Stronger received a healthy 93% Fresh rating at aggregator Rotten Tomatoes based on 150 published reviews upon its limited theatrical release in September, 2017.
