9/11 Films: Ready Or Not, Here They Come

“As the nation nears the fifth anniversary of the terrorist attacks, a growing debate is emerging in Internet chat rooms and elsewhere over Hollywood’s decision to tackle elements of that day in “United 93,” set for release April 28, and Oliver Stone’s planned August release of “World Trade Center”… The key points of contention: whether the films are coming too soon for a nation still trying to sort out its emotions and whether Hollywood is guilty of callousness in using victims’ stories for studio gain. Yet both movies were produced with the help and support of those most closely affected, suggesting that the families of those who died that day could be farther along the healing path than some of the rest of the nation.”
