Unfolding mostly in a jagged-edge cave of earth, steel and concrete, Oliver Stone's World Trade Center looks at Sept. 11 not just from the ground up, but from underneath Ground Zero.
Stone and screenwriter Andrea Berloff pay heartfelt tribute to Sgt. John McLoughlin (Nicolas Cage) and Will Jimeno (Michael Pena), Port Authority Police Department officers who maintained hope while caught 20 feet below the rubble of 9/11.
World Trade Center (Paramount) Starring Nicolas Cage, Michael Pena, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Maria Bello, Michael Shannon. Directed by Oliver Stone. Rated PG-13. Time 129 minutes.
