Writer: Paul Greengrass

Music by: John Powell

Producers: Tim Bevan; Eric Fellner; Lloyd Levin; Paul Greengrass

Keywords: Drama, Terrorism

Historical drama presents a real-time account of events surrounding the September 11, 2001 hijacking of United Airlines Flight 93.

Two American Airlines and United Airlines jets apiece were hijacked by terrorists loyal to al-Qaeda on September 11, 2001, with the intent of inflicting irreparable damage on the United States' collective psyche. One such flight, United Flight 93, diverted from a Newark, New Jersey - San Francisco route, crashed into a field near Shanksville, Pennsylvania before it could reach its unknown final destination thanks to the actions of passengers unwilling to acquiesce to hijackers without a fight; a generally agreed-upon account of the ordeal serves as the basis for United 93. Positively received by domestic and international critics, United 93 earned special mention for avoiding jingoistic cliches nationalistic films are often wont to fall back on.
