Stronger — Trailer


added: Thu, Jun 22nd '17

Despite suffering devastating life-changing injuries, Jake Gyllenhaal continues to stand tall and strong in the heart-wrenching trailer for the Boston Marathon bombing drama "Stronger."

Inspired by the inspirational true story of Boston Marathon bombing survivor Jeff Bauman, the film casts Gyllenhaal as Bauman, a working-class Boston man who was standing at the finishing line, cheering on his Marathon-running girlfriend (played by the Emmy-winning star of "Orphan Black" Tatiana Maslany) when the terrorist attack occurred.

The drama follows Bauman's grueling recovery from the time he realized the blast took both of his legs to his months and months in the hospital to his arduous rehabilitation at home as he struggles to cope with his injuries.

"There was a time in the hospital when I just wanted to give up," says Gyllenhaal in the above trailer. "And now I just want to live."

Two-time Oscar-nominated actress Miranda Richardson co-stars as Bauman's mother, Patty Bauman, in the upcoming film, which is based on the best-selling book by Jeff Bauman and Bret Witter.

Directed by prolific filmmaker David Gordon Green (Our Brand Is Crisis, Pineapple Express, Prince Avalanche), "Stronger" arrives in theaters on September 22nd.

Stronger is the inspiring true story of Jeff Bauman, an ordinary man who captured the hearts of his city and the world to become the symbol of hope following the infamous 2013 Boston Marathon bombing. Jake Gyllenhaal stars as Jeff, a 27-year-old, working-class Boston man who was at the marathon to try and win back his ex-girlfriend Erin (Tatiana Maslany). Waiting for her at the finish line when the blast occurs, he loses both his legs in the attack. 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."
