We went to see the film Stronger, with little expectation. Only knew a little bit about the story of Jeff Baumen, who lost both of his legs during the Boston Marathon bombing in 2015.
What we didn’t expect was a tremendous film with incredible performances by Jake Gyllenhaal, Tatiana Maslany, and Miranda Richardson. Each of these actors could score an Oscar nomination.
It’s an incredibly moving, restrained tale that should resonate with everyone. An unexpected surprise of a film. Gripping, notable, and award worthy.
