Watch Jake Gyllenhaal and Tatiana Maslany in the Stronger trailer
Lionsgate and Roadside Attractions have debuted the first trailer for the true-life Boston bombing drama Stronger, starring Jake Gyllenhaal and Tatiana Maslany. Check out the Stronger trailer below, and look for the movie when it opens on September 22, 2017.
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. 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 (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.”
The film also stars Academy Award nominee Miranda Richardson and Clancy Brown, and is directed by David Gordon Green (Pineapple Express, Our Brand is Crisis) from a screenplay by John Pollono based on the book Stronger by Jeff Bauman and Bret Witter.
