This movie about Jeff Bau­man, who sur­vived the 2013 Bos­ton Marathon bomb­ing, could have been too sug­ary.

But a great script and a won­der­ful per­for­mance from Jake Gyl­len­haal makes it a sub­tle, mov­ing, must-see movie. Bau­man lost both legs in the ter­ror­ist at­tack but was hailed a hero after he iden­ti­fied the two bombers. The movie de­tails his strug­gle to cope with both in­jury and fame but in the end, as the ti­tle sug­gests, what didn’t kill him made him stronger. Out 8 De­cem­ber
