Netflix just shared the first and official trailer for Worth, which is a Sundance movie that tells of the events after the 9/11 attacks.
Is it easy to determine the value of lost lives by dollars? Certainly not. This is why this Sundance movie is quite promising when we watch the trailer. It is about an attorney who tries to compensate for people’s losses aftermath of the 9/11 attacks on the World Trade Center and Pentagon. Cinephiles absolutely adore the performances by Michael Keaton and Stanley Tucci, who are the stars of Worth (originally titled What Is Life Worth). If you’re curious as to whether watch or skip this movie, let us introduce you more.
What is the synopsis of Worth?
Worth follows the tragedies of the loved ones of victims of 9/11. Unfortunately, it is not easy to determine whom to compensate and how much to give to them. While some people legally mean nothing to each other, the victims called them first. Therefore, purely economic compensation to the family members is not at all just. Here’s the synopsis of the Worth:
“Following the horrific 2001 attacks on the World Trade Center and Pentagon, Congress appoints attorney and renowned mediator Kenneth Feinberg (Michael Keaton) to lead the September 11th Victim Compensation Fund. Assigned with allocating financial resources to the victims of the tragedy, Feinberg and his firm’s head of operations, Camille Biros (Amy Ryan), face the impossible task of determining the worth of life to help the families who had suffered incalculable losses.
When Feinberg locks horns with Charles Wolf, a community organizer mourning the death of his wife, his initial cynicism turns to compassion as he begins to learn the true human costs of the tragedy.”
While the topic of Worth seems interesting enough, it’s not brilliant according to the critics at IMDb. The movie currently stands on a 6.4 rating, which might change after the movie makes its way to Netflix.
Who are in the cast and crew of Worth?
The director of the movie is Sara Colangelo, who is also the writer and the director of Little Accidents. Max Borenstein, on the other hand, pens the script. He’s also working on a Game of Thrones spin-off.
Here are some actors alongside their characters.
- Michael Keaton as Kenneth Feinberg
- Stanley Tucci as Charles Wolf
- Amy Ryan as Camille Biros
- Kaura Benanti as Karen Abate
- Tate Donovan as Lee Quinn
- Chris Tardio as Frank Donato
- E.R. Ruiz as Carlos
What is the release date of Worth?
Worth is coming to Netflix on September 3rd, 2021. While waiting for the release date, check out its trailer below to get accustomed to the movie.
The trailer shows us the negotiations between the victims and the politicians, who look at the topic from completely different angles. While it makes sense to compensate the victims’ families by economic value lost, it’s apparently not the best option for the mourning ones. Fortunately, Kenneth Goldberg becomes empathetic to the victims after a while. We’ll see whether he can make the remaining ones happy.
