Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this film isn't appropriate for younger kids and may be too much for sensitive teens. It includes explicit images of the World Trade Center Towers collapsing, mostly from inside the buildings (with crashing/exploding sound effects). It also features potentially upsetting television footage and recreations of Ground Zero, the air filled with smoke and dust, with fires burning. Early on, you see a body falling from a tower (and cops' horrified reactions); later, several men are crushed by the falling building; one dies on screen, gurgling blood from his mouth as another observes (again, horrified). At the hospital the victims' injuries are visible (broken limbs, bloody faces). Family members waiting for news are tense and sad, and some argue; a woman cries about her lost son; a pregnant woman vomits; some characters smoke cigarettes and use occasional harsh language.

Sexual Content

A couple appears in bed together during a white-lit, happy flashback (some kissing, much laughing).

Violence

A shot of the hole left by one of the planes shows flames; a tiny figure appears from a long distance, jumping/falling from one of the towers; scenes of the collapsing towers are disturbing (loud noises, chaotic editing, cuts to black screens); people emerge from towers bloody and dazed; TV image of United Flight 93 crash site in Pennsylvania; men lying beneath rubble are plainly injured (they have trouble breathing, lose consciousness, describe their crushed knees and other damage; a trapped man fires a gun into the air, then dies.

Language

One "f--k;" other profanity used by injured men.

Social Behavior

Characters cope with traumatic circumstances with resolve, courage, and compassion.

Consumerism

Mention of Target, CVS aisles show glimpses of products.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Characters smoke cigarettes.
