Last night I had the chance to attend an advanced screening of United 93. All I have to say is WOW!!!! There are few movies that will impact you the way that this film does.
United 93 tells the story of the only flight out of four that were high-jacked on Sept. 11, 2001 that did not hit it’s intended target. The film is shot in kind of a “home movie/documentary” style that seems to really work for telling this story.
What I love about this movie is that the characters are real and not over dramatized. I also really like the way the film has a definite message, but is not political in nature. As the movie ended, the audience left the theater in silence. As my friend and I drove home, we found ourselves remembering with vivid clarity exactly where we were and what we were doing when we first heard about the attack on the World Trade Center.
I would definitely recommend this movie. But you might want to take some tissue with you!
