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!
