A cinema verité documentary about Stanless Steel, The Strongest Man in the World at Bending Steel and Metal.
Told with the kind of intimacy that can only be achieved with years of filming, "Strongman" follows the dreams and heartbreaking humanity of Stanless Steel—the only man alive who can bend a penny with his fingers—as he struggles to gain control of a world that seems constantly out of his grasp. "Strongman" is a film about faith, about believing in yourself and a film about never giving up. A film about weakness and a film about strength.
"An affectionate glimpse of a truly American dreamer." - Seattle Times
"A sad, affecting love story" - Boston Globe
"A strange and strangely beautiful film..." - Variety
