If you saw Peter Berg's dramatisation of the 2013 Boston marathon bombing, Patriots Day, you may recall the character of Jeff Bauman, who tragically lost both his legs in the explosion. Now director David Gordon Green brings Bauman's story to the fore in Stronger, which stars Jake Gyllenhaal as Bauman and Tatian Maslany as his supportive girlfriend Erin.

Stronger should hit UK/ROI cinemas later this year.

The official synopsis reads:

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.

Jake 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 (Tatiana 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.
