One fateful elevator ride.
News About "9/11"
This movie is based on a play titled Elevator, written by Patrick James Carson. Previously produced for amateur theater, the script is getting the Hollywood treatment and will now star Charlie Sheen and Whoopi Goldberg.
Because 9/11 has an R-rating from the MPPA (mostly for language), it will not be a movie you can share with your young children. If you are looking for ways to teach your kids about the significance of the day the New York Trade Towers came crashing down, check out Nickelodeon Network’s Nick News: What Happened? The Story of September 11, 2001.
Movies can be an effective way of helping children understand and appreciate history, but remember all stories are told with some bias or artistic license.
