Review by Amanda Gilmore for Mr. Will Wong
The Film tells the true story of Attorney Kenneth Feinberg (Michael Keaton) who led the 9/11 Victims Compensation Fund.
Worth is a sensitive Drama that centers on a question impossible to answer: how much is a life worth? Director Sara Colangelo shows us a different 9/11 story that focuses on the survivors and their families just as much as it does Feinberg. Within the prime narrative, there are scenes that show the unfair class hierarchy government and corporations have and impose on society. Keaton is in his best form and Stanley Tucci is as good as ever in the role of Charles Wolf, a community organizer whose wife died in the towers.
Worth screens at Sundance on Fri, Jan. 24th at 9:45 PM at Eccles Theatre, Sat, Jan. 25th at 8:45 AM at Library Centre Theatre, Sat, Jan. 25th at 9:30 PM at Grand Theatre, Tues, Jan. 28th at 6 PM at Sundance Resort, and Sat, Feb. 1st at 5:30 PM at Egyptian Theatre.
