DIRECTOR David Gordon Green
CAST Jake Gyllenhaal, Tatiana Maslany, Miranda Richardson, Richard Lane Jr

Jake Gyllenhaal delivers a staggering, heart-wrenching performance in the real life story of Jeff Bauman who lost both his legs in the Boston Marathon bombing.

Jake Gyllenhaal gives a remarkable performance as a survivor of the Boston Marathon bombing in this emotionally compelling true story. As well as learning to live with his disability, he struggles to accept the role of hero that is thrust on him after he identifies one of the suspects. An inspiring account of one man’s physical and emotional journey and the important role of those around him, which raises interesting questions about patriotism and heroism.
(2017 USA 119 mins)

Punch and grittily realistic, the unvarnished true-life story of Bauman … isn’t your average inspirational melodrama … David Gordon Green’s survival tale looks at life after the headlines fade … An intense but understated Gyllenhaal is superb throughout, adroitly conveying Jeff’s ambivalence at being hailed as ‘Boston Strong’, while splintered by PTSD and horrific flashbacks. It’s a portrayal as tough and complex as the man it honours.  Kate Stables, Total Film
