"United 93"
The horror and heroism of September 11, 2001, is seen from the perspective of the hijacked airplane that did not reach its intended target, thanks to a selfless group of passengers. Described by Variety as “taut, visceral and predictably gut-wrenching,” United 93 chronicles the flight as the four hijackers take control and steer a course of terror. While air-traffic controllers and military personnel scramble in the wake of planes slamming into the Twin Towers, the passengers of Flight 93 realize they are part of another suicide mission—and that they are the only hope to stop it. Written and directed by Paul Greengrass. United 93 has been seen on various HBO channels: HBO, HBO SIGNATURE, HBO LATINO and HBO HighDef.
