Critic Reviews of "Stronger (2017)"
The AtlanticOctober 13, 2017
But the movie shouldn't be dismissed as just another real-life drama to catch on cable TV someday; Stronger is a profound, sensitively made gem.
BuzzFeed NewsSeptember 28, 2017
The boldest thing Stronger does is trust enough in Maslany's performance and in the writing of her character to allow Erin to do something that a lesser movie would never even attempt.
TIME MagazineSeptember 28, 2017
Green's film has a tense, nervy energy, most of which seems to glow from Gyllenhaal's very core.
San Francisco ChronicleSeptember 27, 2017
"Stronger" always feels right in the moment, solidified by an outstanding central performance by Gyllenhaal, and some wonderful ensemble work, especially the actors just below the top billing.
New York Magazine/VultureSeptember 26, 2017
There are few actors in their 30s more well-rounded than [Jake] Gyllenhaal right now, as capable of taking on disturbing psychologies in aggressive indies as they are the lead roles in crowd-pleasing tearjerkers.
New York ObserverSeptember 22, 2017
I'm a sucker for these survival stories that show the best side of man's humanity, and Gyllenhaal makes this one a stronger achievement than most.

Green continues his exploration of pain, simmering rage and guilt in a similar manner to his previous films, Manglehorn and Joe, while gritty cinematography from Sean Bobbitt complements the confrontational approach.

David Gordon Green brings an emotional honesty that these type of films usually lack.
Cultured VulturesNovember 12, 2017
Jake Gyllenhaal and Tatiana Maslany both deliver top-notch performances in the inspirational Stronger as the film defines what it means to be Boston Strong.
Reel Film ReviewsNovember 12, 2017
Filmmaker David Gordon Green offers up a low-key, deliberately-paced narrative that proves an ideal complement for John Pollono's subdued screenplay...
CineXpressNovember 09, 2017
This is a heartbreaking and inspiring film about the will of the human spirit. [Full review in Spanish]
Cinema ScopeNovember 08, 2017
As a procedural about the work required to come back into one's body after a major physical and psychic trauma, Stronger is surprisingly compelling. It does well by its subject's non-hysterical response to his new life post-injury.
