Movie Info

After the terrible events of September 11th, Nick (Anthony LaPaglia), a New York Fire Department captain, is left with the daunting task of delivering the eulogies for eight fallen firefighters who perished during the evacuation of the World Trade Center. Overpowered with emotion and unsure what to say, he gets help from a journalist (Sigourney Weaver) who helps him craft eulogies to honor not only his men who died, but also everyone who lost their lives that day.

    a chief firefighter, needs to write eulogies for his 8 dead men, after september 11th 2001, so enlists a journalist to help him tackle subject, emotions come out in this well thought drama, possibly the first to tackle 911, a year after attacks, just a simple drama, paying respect to those who deserve it, both actors are well cast here playing off one another

    This is a tough movie to comment on, because i want to like it as i love Anthony Lapaglia and Sigourney weaver is amazing in this but it is a slow movie, really emotional and depressing and just not very much going on, i think they could of added a bit moreto this movie but it was nice to see a different view from what happened on 9/11! This movie reminds me of Flight 93 also known as United 93 although not very much going on a bit slow and you could say boring but its harsh to say this when its based on real events and is truly sad. Like Flight 93 at the end it made me blubber it dedicated the movie to the fallen firefighters and listed every single one of there names and it got really emotional and sad! Anthony Lapaglia plays a chief fireman who is ment to write something for memorials of his fallen men but cant think of anything to write so he asks for a journalist played by sigourney weaver for her help and between them they write speeches! This movie is majority set in weavers house with just te two of them talking! If you want excitement then this isnt the movie for you! Really this film isnt predictable becuase its hard to see where this movie is going because you sort expect more from this movie but it just doesnt cut it! i guess its worth a watch because it is a short movie and does get emotional!

    A good movie but a really odd choice of a movie to make.

    There are no active firefighting scenes in this movie but it is about NYFD captain who loses eight men in the WTC collapse. He is dumbfounded at the prospect of writing so many eulogies in one weeks and must enlist the help of a writer for help. I found this movie to be especially poignant because my husband was in the Baltimore City Fire Department for 32 years and know how many close calls he has had.
