Winner of the Grand Jury Prize at this year's Slamdance Film Festival, STRONGMAN is the cinema verite tale of Stanless Steel--The Strongest Man in the World at Bending Steel and Metal. Part real-life The Wrestler, part Grey Gardens, and absolutely all heart, the film follows Stan as he faces the tests of his Fellini-esque calling while simultaneously grappling with advancing age and difficult personal relationships.
"A strange and strangely beautiful movie." John Anderson, Variety
