Dozens of people attended the screening of “Stronger” today at the Spaulding Rehabilitation Hospital in Boston. The movie arrives in theaters Sept. 22.

The movie stars Jake Gyllenhaal as Bauman and “Orphan Black” actress Tatiana Maslany as Bauman’s then-girlfriend, Erin Hurley. Bauman, Hurley and their on-screen counterparts walked a red carpet at the hospital, with Gyllenhaal and Bauman side by side.
