At the beginning of the movie, one of the characters asks the Yankee fan if he saw Jeter's home run during Saturday's game. Derek Jeter didn't play the Saturday before Sept. 11 because he was injured. In that game on Saturday, September 8 2001, the Yankees beat the Boston Red Sox 9 to 2. Enrique Wilson filled in at shortstop for the injured Derek Jeter and went 2 for 4 including a triple, with a run and a run batted in. See more »

Many of us remember that morning so vividly. September 11th, 2001. I had the opportunity to see the film from Paramount Pictures and directed by Oliver Stone last night with about 50 firefighters from the Tucson Area as well as a handful of law enforcement officers.
I really wasn't sure if I wanted to see the film. I remember watching the TV, glued to it, for answers to the questions that I never will have answered as to how something so horrible could happen. This film doesn't attempt to try to answer that question, instead it looks at the spirit of people and how we can come together to help others.
I am so glad I went to see this! It is a powerful work of film that tells the story without sensationalizing the event and the anger and hatred for the attackers following the attacks. It's a film of last words and feelings we tend to develop after years in a relationship. There are tears of joy, laughs, and tears of sorrow interlaced throughout this film with Strong acting from a huge cast including Nicolas Cage and Michael Pena.
Totally recommend this film although it may certainly be tough for those that lost loved ones in the buildings.
