There is no question that the life story of Jeff Bauman, one of the surviving victims of the Boston Marathon bombing in 2013, is both devastating and powerful, heart-breaking and inspirational. But that does not make a movie about his ordeals necessarily equally stirring, and Jake Gyllenhaal’s Stronger is an example of one such movie, one with a heartfelt message but not a clear vessel to deliver it.
