Remember the tragedy that happened on 9/11? Well, this movie is based on a true story chronicling the lives of five average, everyday people who find themselves trapped in an elevator during the events of 9/11 in the World Trade Center.
Do you remember what you were doing on this devastating day? I do. I was sick, lying on the couch. I hadn’t heard a thing until I went to my computer around 1pm where I opened an email a from a friend informing me of what was happening. I turned the TV on and could not believe what I was hearing/seeing. I’d never seen anything like it before and couldn’t comprehend a thing about it. My heart sank for all involved (minus the terrorists).
9/11 opens in theaters on September 8 and features an all star cast including Luis Guzman(The Taking of Pelham 1,2,3), Gina Gershon (Showgirls), Wood Harris (Justified), Jacqueline Bisset (Dancing on the Edge (BBC), Welcome to New York), Olga Fonda (The Vampire Diaries) and Bruce Davison (X-Men).
In the World Trade Center, a billionaire sits in his attorney’s office awaiting a divorce hearing against his wife. In a west side apartment, a bike messenger kisses his 5-year old daughter and sings her “Happy Birthday” before leaving for work. A maintenance man gets dispatched to help a tenant with his lock. In an upper east side apartment, a young model musters the courage to break up with her sugar daddy. As random as random can be, these individuals step into a crowded World Trade Center elevator.
Wrapped up in their own world, they all ride silently hearing only the sound of the elevator giving notice of each floor. When the elevator stops on the 34th floor, it empties leaving only these five behind. Moments later … their world changes as the collision of a jet into the North Tower incapacitates the elevator.
With no understanding of what has happened and is happening around them, these fives are forced to band together and fight against all odds to escape from the impending horrific collapse. During these critical minutes, a story of courage, faith, and the will to live unfolds.
