Stronger (2017)

“Stronger” (USA, 2017, biography, 119 minutes, R)

Jake Gyllenhaal stars in the true-life story of Jeff Bauman, who was waiting at the finish line for his runner girlfriend when the terrorist bombs exploded during the 2013 Boston Marathon.

He lost both his legs but provided police with a solid description of one of the two bombers before beginning his long and difficult recovery, emotionally and physically.

The movie is based on Bauman’s New York Times bestselling book, co-authored with Bret Witter. Debuted at the Toronto International Film Festival.
