Stronger is the inspiring real life story of Jeff Bauman, an ordinary man who captured the hearts of his city and the world to become a symbol of hope after surviving the 2013 Boston Marathon bombing.

Director: David Gordon Green
Writer: John Pollono, Jeff Bauman, Bret Witter
Stars: Jake Gyllenhaal, Tatiana Maslany, Miranda Richardson

Faith, Hope & Love: Becoming Stronger
This is an informative behind-the-scenes featurette with cast & crew interviews and on-set footage. The participants discuss the true story source material, casting process, actor/director relationship, makeup/effects used to erase Gyllenhaal's legs, and the use of Jeff's real doctors and therapists in the movie. Likewise, we also get to hear from Jeff himself. Though I wish there were a few more extras on the disc, this is a very worthwhile inclusion.
