The new film "Stronger" tells the story of Jeff Bauman, a man from Chelmsford who was on Boylston Street watching the Boston Marathon on April 15, 2013, when the first bomb exploded just a few feet away from him. Three people died on Boylston Street that day. And more than 260 were injured, many of them horribly, like Jeff, who lost both his legs.
In the months after the attacks, Jeff recovered, and wrote a memoir called "Stronger," on which the new film is based. It was shown for the first time in the U.S. Tuesday night, at the Spaulding Rehabilitation Hospital in Boston.
