Very well done documentary, not easy to do when you are a person who lost your brother on 9/11--but also how she began footage from the beginning of the event and likely how she gained access to the human stories that are the foundation of the film. Valuable to note that Lutnick, the CEO of Cantor Fitzgerald, did not finance this movie, nor see it until it was completed. And that the NYT reporter, O'Reilly, nor Connie Chung ever personally apologized for attacking him publicly without having done their homework, within a month of 9/11. Shame, shame, shame on them.

Moving, Cautionary Story of Cantor Fitzgerald Victims & Survivors

By nancygagnier

This is an important perspective on what happens to the families of victims and a reminder that they are forever changed by a loss that was very public. It's also a cautionary tale about the ways in which media narratives--the ways in which they create heroes and demons--can damage the families of the victims.

I really enjoyed this movie and I thought it was a great representation of the fallout from 9/11. The events of that day are well documented and captured in the film but the story is one that can be understood by all adults, teenagers, and especially anybody who can relate to the story or the events. The director also did a good job of capturing different sides of the story and the varying opinions as events and circumstances developed around the company.

This is a great movie for bring closure to the whole concept of what happened to Cantor Fitzgerald in the years after 9/11. There was a lot of negativity about the company and the movie clarifies the fact that the survivors and surviving family members were well looked after by the company. It is an excellent movie. It is mostly for adults.
