From the 2017 Toronto Film Festival we present the press conference highlights for David Gordon Green’s Stronger, written by John Pollono, based on the book “Stronger” by Jeff Bauman.  

The film stars Jake Gyllenhaal, Tatiana Maslany, Clancy Brown, Miranda Richardson and arrived in Toronto ahead of its release on the 22nd of September around the world.

Tell 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 following the infamous 2013 Boston Marathon bombing. It is the second movie to depict the events following the tragedy, the first being last year’s Patriots Day with MArk Wahlberg.

During the press conference Gyllenhaal talks about the movie being ‘relatable, but ultimately about something bigger than the story itself.’ Director David Gordon Green complemented this, saying ‘after an event like this, but after the headlines have faded […] I think it’s important to look at the individuals and families and communities that grow, that evolve, that are empowered by the negative events.’
