Unlimited members were lucky enough to attend last night's preview screening of powerful Jake Gyllenhaal drama, Stronger. On wide release from this Friday, it tells the harrowing, inspirational true story of Boston bombing survivor Jeff Bauman (played by Gyllenhaal) and his road to recovery, with the actor being tipped for a possible Oscar nomination.
So what did you guys make of the film? We'll start with Alex who hails Gyllenhaal's performance.
Wow. Just got out of the @cineworld #UnlimitedScreening of @StrongerTheFilm and I cried from start to finish. An absolutely incredible film, and such an inspirational story. Jake Gyllenhaal was outstanding— Alex Burgess (@alexie_bee) December 6, 2017
Kiki is another person who praises Gyllenhaal's ability to convey emotional anguish.
It was so emotional, I shed a few tears that's for sure. Jake Gyllenhaal really did a great job at making us feel his pain.— Kiki (@o_MisuKiki_o) December 6, 2017
Yet Cheltenham Cinematic says the movie offers a multitude of different emotions besides sadness and anger.
Fantastic performances all round, loved the mix of humour, anger, upset, & compassion throughout, & the Lt. Dan (#ForrestGump) remark had me in stitches. Some graphic content, but very enjoyable. #Stronger #CineworldUnlimited #UnlimitedScreening— Cheltenham Cinematic (@CheltCinematic) December 6, 2017
Alan says the movie doesn't just belong to Gyllenhaal, also complimenting the supporting performances from Tatiana Maslany as Jeff's girlfriend, Erin, and Miranda Richardson as his mother, Patty.
Excellent, life affirming stuff. Great performances all round.— Alan Smith (@luckyal65) December 6, 2017
We'll end with this from Marcus.
It’s was emotional! Very intense and very gripping! Give this 4 stars— Marcus (@Marcus_Gomezz) December 6, 2017
