'Stronger' With Jake Gyllenhaal is the Boston Marathon Bombing Film We Didn't Know We Needed

When two homemade bombs exploded near the finish line of the 2013 Boston Marathon, spewing ball bearings, shrapnel and nails into the bodies of more than 250 children and adults, photos streamed online in real time. Pretty much every bit information about the Boston Marathon bombings has been photographed and dissected, from the dramatic search for the suspects, Tamerlan and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, to heartfelt profiles of the victims, survivors and doctors and nurses who helped save lives. As if we didn't fully grasp the enormity of the event, last year, Boston’s other famous son, Mark Wahlberg (not Matt Damon), starred in Patriots Day, about the hunt for the Tsarnaev brothers.
