Rating: NR

Montine McLeod, a world-weary flight attendant, and Omar Hassan, a prematurely wise 10-year-old Pakastani-American boy connect with one another amidst the chaos of September 11, 2001. When Montine discovers the boy's direct personal link to the terrorist attacks, she instinctively embarks on an unsanctioned cross-country road trip to help Omar discover his uncertain future.

"The Space Between" is a look at the aftermath of 9/11 through the eyes of two specific individuals. Melissa Leo plays an airline stewardess who is dealing with personal issues, shortly after the events unfold she finds herself accompanying a 10 year old Pakistani boy back to his father in New York City after the Twin Towers are hit on 9/11. To say too much about the plot would only ruin the story here and I don't want to do that. But I can tell you the story has enough twists in it to keep you engaged the entire time. For what looks like a simple story from the outside it has a lot going on with it's characters so this is one film that is better seen.

Melissa Leo is brilliant as the stewardess with a lot on her mind, so much that it's effecting her job performance and Anthony Keyvan is amazing as young Omar, Anthony is a very talented young actor and both are amazing together. "The Space Between" is a thought-provoking film about the tragic day that we can all relate to. I was expecting a good film considering Leo was starring it in but I certainly enjoyed it much more than I expected. It's a story of tragedy on a personal and large scale, it's also a story of a woman who has lost her way and a little boy that helps her find it as they travel together to get him home safe.

If you like a good drama then you need to check this one out, a must-see film on so many levels and a cast and shines. The DVD doesn't come with any extras but the film is worth the price alone. You can order the DVD HERE.

A powerful, sad and hopeful story that is truly a gem.
