Jake Gyllenhaal and Tatiana Maslany are ‘Stronger’ in trailer for Boston bombing drama

Academy Award nominee Jake Gyllenhaal and Emmy winner Tatiana Maslany star in David Gordon Green’s Stronger, based on the inspiring true story of Jeff Bauman, who lost his legs in the 2013 terrorist bombing of the Boston Marathon while waiting near the finish line for his girlfriend Erin Hurley (played by Maslany), who was running in the marathon at the time.

From Roadside Attractions:

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. It is Jeff’s deeply personal account of the heroic journey that tests a family’s bond, defines a community’s pride and inspires his inner courage to overcome devastating adversity. Filled with raw emotion, humanity and humor, Stronger is the inspirational real-life story of the man who became the living embodiment of “Boston Strong.”

The film is based on the 2014 book of the same name by Bauman and Brett Witter and also stars Academy Award nominee Miranda Richardson and Clancy Brown. Lionsgate and Roadside Attractions will release the film on September 22nd.

Here is the trailer:

About Erik Anderson

Erik blames his mother for his love of all things Oscar, having watched them together since he opened his eyes. They also watched Miss Universe religiously every year (the pageantry!) and Erik came to the conclusion that the combination of these two things ultimately led him down the path to obsessing about awards and ACTRESSING. He began at GoldDerby, led by Tom O’Neill and then migrated over to Oscarwatch (now AwardsDaily), headed up by Sasha Stone before breaking off to create AwardsWatch. He is a member of the International Cinephile Society, GALECA (The Society of LGBTQ Entertainment Critics), the International Press Academy and is the founder/owner of AwardsWatch.
