Compelling and powerful drama worth your time

Arriving mere months after the release of 2016's Patriots Day, Stronger is not just another film solely concerned with the 2013 Boston Marathon bombings. Indeed, whereas the Peter Berg-directed Patriots Day superbly covered the attack and subsequent nationwide manhunt for the bombers, Stronger traverses different territory to tell a more personal and intimate story; a biographical drama about one ... read more

I wasn’t really sure what to expect from this flick but since I have a weak spot for Jake Gyllenhaal, I was quite eager to check it out. To be honest, I have to admit that I didn’t even know before watching the damned thing that it was dealing with the 2013 Boston Marathon bombing.

A good movie

“I wasn’t really sure what to expect from this flick but since I have a weak spot for Jake Gyllenhaal, I was quite eager to check it out. To be honest, I have to admit that I didn’t even know before watching the damned thing that it was dealing with the 2013 Boston Marathon bombing. It didn’t matter though, in the contrary, this way, I was more able to focus more on the characters going casually with their life before the tragedy. Anyway, this story was basically doomed to become your typical inspiring biopic but David Gordon Green chose a more gloomy and gritty approach which was much more than welcome. Indeed, not only Jeff Bauman had to struggle with the fact that he had lost his legs but also with the fact that he had become overnight some kind of hero which was a status he didn” read more

“Arriving mere months after the release of 2016's Patriots Day, Stronger is not just another film solely concerned with the 2013 Boston Marathon bombings. Indeed, whereas the Peter Berg-directed Patriots Day superbly covered the attack and subsequent nationwide manhunt for the bombers, Stronger traverses different territory to tell a more personal and intimate story; a biographical drama about one of the many people affected by the blasts. The material is more or less Hallmark "movie of the week" territory, but director David Gordon Green astutely avoids maudlin sentiment. Indeed, as opposed to overbearing music or cheesy, on-the-nose dialogue, Green's approach is sophisticated and low-key, relying on the strength of both the actors and the story. The R rating helps, as honest-to-goodness g” read more

" DVD- 1hr. 59min. First Viewing While it does adhere a bit too much biopic, wronged-man tropes, Stronger cuts away the bloat to present a sobering look at recovering from trauma. Director David Gordon Green handles the material well, not overplaying the inspiring-victim card, but instead opts to focus on the recovering and aftermath, with a sharp focus on the characters. Most of them could be seen as stock characters (typical Boston-types), but the cast is exception, lead by another top-notch pe"
