Storyline

Drew is a cute, dorky comic book writer who's still struggling with crippling grief over losing a close friend to the World Trade Center attack. After his friend's death he yearns to do something meaningful as a tribute to those who died. He cooks up the idea of an "everyday hero," a character based on an average New Yorker without super powers. Drew's idea is that we all are heroes in our own way. The idea of course is lambasted by Drew's colleagues. But after he selects an unwitting person to base his character, Justice, on, the comic becomes a surprise hit. Things get sticky when nosy Village Voice reporter Mara becomes determined to find the true identity of Justice... Written by Anonymous

Compact film packs a punch
26 March 2004 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Drew, a comic strip writer in NYC, still grieving over the death of a friend in 9/11, gets his publisher to agree to a limited run of "Justice". He finds someone in a pick-up basketball game who fits the type for this comic book about an ordinary person who is a hero - but doesn't get around to getting his permission to use background materials. (background biography, images, etc) which puts Drew in a less-than-ideal situation. Although this is resolved, Drew seems more focused on the character of "Justice" to be dealing out retribution to evil-doers rather than just helping people. This is at odds with the person "Justice" is based on, and disturbs the writer when the more benevolent views surface in a Village Voice article. The "spunky" journalist helps Drew see that however great his grief, life must go on.

Brilliant, concise film with an ending twist you may not see coming . ..
