Stronger

Jake Gyllenhaal plays Jeff Bauman who is desperately trying to win back his girlfriend, Erin Hurley (Tatiana Maslany). When she finally receives donation money to run in the 2013 Boston Marathon, he helps her get support and makes a sign to hold for her at the finish line. But since Jeff is always either late to everything or a no-show, Erin isn’t happy and doesn’t expect him to show up at all. But as bombs go off as she approaches the finish line and she sees a badly injured Jeff being carried away from the finish line, does she realize he actually was there.

With his legs blown off below the knee, he now has to go through a long and difficult healing process, not just physically but emotionally. During this process Erin realises that Jeff’s family may not always know what’s best for Jeff’s recovery and she struggles to be a positive influence in his life, while questioning her role in it.

Based on the book Stronger by Jeff Bauman and Bret Witter.
