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:

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.”[/box]
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.
