Jake Gyllenhaal To Receive Golden Eye Award At ZFF
8 September, 2017 Author: Catagories: News & Headlines

Oscar-nominated actor Jake Gyllenhaal will receive the Golden Icon award for lifetime achievement at this year’s Zurich International Film Festival.

Gyllenhaal will attend the Zurich fest to present Stronger, in which he stars as Boston marathon bombing survivor Jeff Bauman. Stronger, directed by David Gordon Green, which will have its world premiere in Toronto on Friday, will screen Oct. 3 in Zurich.

At least since his breakout performance as Donnie Darko in 2001, Gyllenhaal has counted among the greatest actors of his generation. His embrace of complicated and troubled characters — a closeted gay man struggling with love and identity in Ang Lee’s Brokeback Mountain, a psychotic ambulance chasing video journalist in Dan Gilroy’s Nightcrawler — has been rewarded with both critical and commercial acclaim.

‘Stronger’ Will Premiere at Spaulding Rehabilitation Hospital
28 August, 2017 Author: Catagories: News & Headlines, Stronger

The US premiere of “Stronger,” the movie about Boston Marathon bombing survivor Jeff Bauman, will not be held in a fancy theater in New York, Los Angeles, or even in Boston. Instead, the much-anticipated movie starring Oscar nominee Jake Gyllenhaal will screen first, on Sept. 12, at the Spaulding Rehabilitation Hospital in Charlestown, where Bauman and 31 others injured in the bombings were treated.

“It’s important for us to be in that space,” says “Stronger” director David Gordon Green.

The movie, which arrives in theaters Sept. 22, is the second big-budget Hollywood film about the events of April 15, 2013, when two bombs detonated near the finish line of the Boston Marathon, killing three and wounding more than 260. Bauman, who was there to greet his then-girlfriend, lost both of his legs in one of the blasts.
