A dark, dark film - Stronger review by JG

Spoiler Alert
18/04/2018

A dark, dark film but not so much from the main thrust of the film plot where a spectator’s legs are blown off in the bombing of the Boston marathon, but more from the family of the bomb victim acted by jake Gyllenhaal.

My partner and I found this family relationship quite disturbing and v unsure just how the truth was actually portrayed. ‘Twas rather like watching families fighting on the Jeremy Kyle show. Hot under the collar stuff. If the facts are honest then the whole lot of them accept for the girlfriend of the bomb victim were in need of urgent physiological attention.

Having said that all credit to the films creators to enshrine a cowardly event like this into the annals of history. And for this reason alone it is a dvd worth watching.

Worth a watch - Stronger review by BE

Spoiler Alert
16/03/2020

Predictable movie as we know the story. The superb acting from Jake Gyllenhaal (Jeff) and Tatania Maslany (girlfriend) was better than the movie and just stopped it from becoming maudlin. His mother ((Miranda Richardson), performed like a voiciferous refugee from the Jeremy Kyle show. I am unsure why Jeff became a hero as people that cope with the severance of limbs (and worse) are manifold - probably because he wrote a book about his experience. I was also baffled as to why he did not undertake counselling for PTSD.
