Jake Gyllenhaal shared the first look at the upcoming movie Stronger on his Facebook page Thursday, with Gyllenhaal and actress Tatiana Maslany sharing a tender moment as Marathon bombing survivor Jeff Bauman and his wife Erin Hurley.

Based on the autobiographical book of the same name, Stronger tells the story of Bauman, a Chelmsford native who was at the finish line waiting for his then-girlfriend Hurley to finish the Marathon in 2013 when the bombs went off, taking both of his legs.

The film has been shooting all around the city over the past couple of months, including an emotional scene at a Bruins game in April and a ceremonial first pitch at Fenway Park on Marathon Monday.

Bauman and Hurley were recently seen sharing a loving embrace at the finish line after Hurley completed her first Marathon since 2013 in a little under six hours.

Erin Bauman, the wife of Boston Marathon bombing survivor, Jeffrey Bauman crossed the finish line around 5:20 p.m. It was her first marathon since 2013 when she ran, and her husband came to see her finish. She never finished in 2013 and the first bomb near the finish line blew off Bauman's legs.
