United 93 (2006)

Drama, History, Thriller |.

United 93 is a biographical drama-thriller film written, co-produced and directed by Paul Greengrass, that chronicles events aboard United Airlines Flight 93, which was hijacked during the September 11 attacks of 2001. The film attempts to recount the hijacking and subsequent events in the flight with as much veracity as possible (there is a disclaimer that some imagination had to be used) and in real time (from the flight’s takeoff). The passengers’ response to the hijacking has come to be invested with great moral significance.

According to the filmmakers, the film was made with the cooperation of all of the passengers’ families.

United 93 premiered on April 26, 2006, at the Tribeca Film Festival in New York City, a festival founded to celebrate New York City as a major filmmaking center and to contribute towards the long-term recovery of Lower Manhattan. Several family members of the passengers aboard the flight attended the premiere to show their support.

On the morning of September 11, 2001, passengers board United Airlines Flight 93 bound for San Francisco at Newark Liberty International Airport. Among the passengers are Tom Burnett, Mark Bingham, Todd Beamer, Jeremy Glick, Richard Guadagno, Louis J. Nacke II, William Joseph Cashman, and Patrick Joseph Driscoll. Four al-Qaeda members, Ziad Jarrah, Saeed al-Ghamdi, Ahmed al-Nami, and Ahmed al-Haznawi, also board the flight.

After takeoff, Jarrah hesitates to start the hijacking. Impatient, Haznawi assembles a bomb. Ghamdi grabs flight purser Debbie Welsh at knifepoint. Passenger Mark Rothenberg is mortally wounded and the first-class passengers are forced to the back of the plane. The pilots send out a mayday call but are killed, along with Welsh. Taking the plane’s controls, Jarrah changes its course, intending to crash the plane into the US Capitol. The hijackers learn “The brothers have hit both targets!”
