STRONGER:

Jake Gyllenhaal has taken on some intriguing roles and turned out some fantastic performances, but the one that may get him that Oscar nod could be for playing Jeff Bauman, a survivor of the Boston Marathon bombing. This film is inspiring and personal. The story centers around Bauman’s recovery and fight to overcome all obstacles that face him after losing both of his legs in the bombings. Bauman’s will and no quit attitude is greatly depicted by Gyllenhaal. The film gives a unique first-person account of the terror of the bombings and the aftermath of individual struggle imposed by the events of the bombings. This is a must see film with terrific acting, engaging story, and lots of heart. Check out the story of this courageous man that had to face some improbable obstacles and be inspired.
