“Green could have easily presented Bauman as a fictional construct like Sgt. Saunders, an “inspiring” figure who serves as a hero, but the man he reveals is no saint; instead, Gyllenhaal’s Bauman is simply a person who was at the right place at the wrong time.” -Brett Michel, The Improper Bostonian

“…STRONGER is a worthy tribute to not just Jeff Bauman’s story, but everything his story represented and everyone his story impacted — from the people who witnessed his recovery firsthand, to the bystanders who encountered his story through the media and applied Jeff’s struggles to their own in hopes of making things feel a little bit easier.” – Greg Vellante, Edge Boston
