Product Notes

Stainless 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 ten 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 it's star a true American original-both an Everyman and a Superman-who sticks in your heart and reveals new layers with each viewing.
