United 93

[cert 15, 111 mins]

On September 11, 2001, United Airlines flight 93 prepares to take off from Newark, New Jersey to San Francisco after a delay. As crew and passengers go through the usual flight routine, little do they know that four Al Qaeda terrorists are sitting in their midst. Once the plane is airbourne, the terrorists hijack the plane and force the pilot to head for their target, the third on that fateful day. In actual time, Paul Greengrass tells the story of the day through a re-enactment of events surrounding United 93, from the passengers and crew to the families on the ground and the flight controllers/
