    Stronger is an inspirational & true-life story of Jeff Bauman (Jake Gyllenhaa), the man who lost both of his legs just above the knee in the Boston Marathon bombing, is trying to stand on new prosthetics for the first time. During the movie, Jeff will be told he’s a hero & reminded to stay “Boston Strong,” but will question again & again just what that means. The film subverts it’s own message about the commodification of tragedy to become something even more remarkable-a statement on the value of images of survival.

    Totally inspiring and powerful movie. Gyllenhaal is on quite a role with his last 5-6 movies. He really inhabits the lead role and takes you inside what it was like to be involved in the Boston bombing and the aftermath. It’s easy to get caught up in the publicity and public outpouring of sympathy and support but what happens when you have to go home and live out the rest of your life?

    Stronger was not a popular movie when it came out. It is such a good movie about one of the survivors in the Boston Marathon bombing. I feel that it is a movie people should see. You will most likely she’d some tears so be prepared.

    I had really high expectations for this film when I first heard of it. When I finally saw the film it ended up being okay. I expected much more out of it to be honest. Still enjoyed it and still worth doing a movie night.

    An incredible and inspiring performance by Jake Gyllenhall makes this film so remarkable. Extras on the BluRay disc detail how the film was made along with background of its subject and true hero.

    The movie was good and it really brought back memories of where I was that day, but the movie and book portrayed the main character in two completely different ways and I wasn’t the biggest fan of that.
