Stronger Synopsis

One man becomes a symbol of hope and determination for a wounded city in Stronger, a deeply personal account of the infamous 2013 Boston Marathon bombing and its aftermath. Based on Jeff Bauman's New York Times bestselling memoir, the film celebrates his unrelenting courage against unimaginable odds. On April 15, 2013, Bauman (Academy Award nominee Jake Gyllenhaal) was at the finish line of the Boston Marathon to cheer on his ex-girlfriend Erin Hurley (Emmy Award winner Tatiana Maslany) in an effort to win her back. When a blast rips through the crowd, killing three people and injuring scores of others, Jeff goes from being an ordinary working-class 27-year-old to a double amputee fighting for his life. As Boston and the world reel in shock and anger, a photo of Jeff being carried from the blast site becomes an iconic image of the attack. Despite his injuries, the unassuming Costco worker becomes a national hero by helping law enforcement identify one of the bombers. In the months following the blast, Jeff tackles intensive 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.

Physical Media: Blu-ray Review
Stronger isn't a movie about the events of April 2013 and how it affected Boston and the United States.  Rather, it is about how one sunny afternoon affected a simple man,  his girlfriend, and his family.
