World Trade Center
Source: Catholic News Service
Two police officers (Nicolas Cage and Michael Pena) wait to be found after being crushed in the rubble of the World Trade Center terror attacks on Sept. 11, 2001, while their frantic wives (Maggie Gyllenhaal and Maria Bello) wonder if they've survived, and intrepid good Samaritans (Michael Shannon and Stephen Dorff among them) search the rubble for signs of life. Some may be disappointed that director Oliver Stone eschews an epic approach by focusing on this relatively small, true-life story which nonetheless paints an inspiring picture of bravery, fortitude and sacrifice in the face of enormous adversity. Some intense scenes of peril and suffering, a few profane and crude words uttered under extreme circumstances, injured victims, some bleeding and a brief but disturbing image of the towers with a long shot of a falling body may preclude viewing by younger adolescents. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is A-II -- adults and adolescents. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is PG-13 -- parents strongly cautioned. Some material may be inappropriate for children under 13.
