Roadside Attractions has released the first trailer for David Gordon Green’s Boston Bombing drama Stronger. The film is based on the true story of Jeff Bauman, a 27-year-old, working-class Boston man who was at the marathon to try and win back his ex-girlfriend Erin (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. Filled with raw emotion, humanity and humor, Stronger is the inspirational real-life story of the man who became the living embodiment of “Boston Strong.”
Clancy Brown, Miranda Richardson, Frankie Shaw, Maggie Castle, Acei Martin and Stephanie Atkinson also star. The film opens in theatres September 22, 2017.
