Putting in a career-defining, Oscar-tipped performance, Jake Gyllenhaal plays Jeff Bauman, initially a typical Bostonian, escaping his job at Costco to watch sports and drink beer with his extended family. Intending to make up with girlfriend Erin (Tatiana Maslany) he turns up to cheer her on as she runs a marathon. A horrifying act of violence changes the course of Jeff’s life. An inspiring true story adapted from Bauman’s memoir which tells of surviving the 2013 Boston Marathon bombing, Stronger questions the nature of heroism while serving as a moving tribute to human endurance and to the city of Boston.
