United 93

Biographical drama recreating one of the flights from the September 11 terrorist attack, notable in that it used little-known actors and not Tom Hanks.  Oddly compelling given that you already knew the outcome, and equally hard to fathom the fragmentation of information flow between emergency services in such a scenario… one assumes that in an event as recent as 2001 emergency comms and procedures would already be streamlined, but at least that was one hugely positive outcome from the event. 👍
