Strongman (2009)

    see all cast/crew...
Studio: Passion River
Genre: Documentary, Biographies, Quirky Characters
Running Time: 113 min.

Stanless Steel - "The Strongest Man in the World at Bending Steel and Metal" - is the only man alive capable of bending a U.S. penny with his fingers. But the world around Stan - his aging parents, his alcoholic brother, his beautiful but timid announcer-girlfriend, his show-biz agents and strength rivals, and even Stan himself - is not so malleable. As the pressure mounts, what starts as a portrait of a loveable outsider and his unique feats of strength soon becomes a deeply universal, funny, and poignant story about trying to find a path to a better life through the scraps and dented dreams of our modern times. Made over 10 years in an intimate cinema verite fashion, Strongman offers not only a look at an uncommon subculture but something deeper about the search for strength in all our lives. The critically-acclaimed film is both immediately accessible and profoundly resonant, as we discover in its star a true American original - both an Everyman and a Superman - who sticks in your heart and reveals new layers with each viewing.
