F. Murray Abraham,
Adapted from a stage play by Anne Nelson, a drama centering on a slice of the aftermath of the 9/11 tragedy. Nick, a fire captain, who lost eight men in the collapse of the World Trade Center, enlists help from an editor, Joan, to prepare their eulogies. Nick builds a relationship with Joan, who helps him put together the difficult, heartfelt speeches that he must deliver with honor, humor and poise--all the while, navigating his way through his own emotional response.

The best of the movies about 9-11-01. Anthony LaPaglia was touchingly human and the writing allowed him to show the strengths and flaws of the character seamlessly. Sigourney Weaver was excellent in her ability to both make unreasonable demands in her "deal" with God, and to recognize that there is no deal. Everything is the way it is - the new "normal". The inter-cutting of actual footage from New York City firehouse cameras drives home the point that while you are watching a movie, all of this really happened - the denial, the pain, the shock, loss, anguish, and eventual triumph of making a contribution, in whatever way possible, to the people who survived. Please see this movie.
