Want a movie that portrays faith, marriage, and the Marines in a positive light?
Then go and rent or buy Oliver Stone's "World Trade Center".
Yes,. Oliver Stone, the king of conspiracy theories, made a film that gently touches the good at the heart of people, in his treatment of an act of monstrous evil/
WTC centers on the story of two Port Authority policemen, John McLoughlin and Will Jimeno, who were trapped under the rubble. Twenty people were pulled out alive after the towers fell; Jimeno and McLoughlin were the 18th and 19th, respectively.
There's a lot more to the story. It expands from the plight of the two policemen to encompass their families; McLoughlin has a wife and four children under 15, and Jimeno's wife is pregnant with their second daughter.
The marriages are not perfect. They have the bumps and itches that we all face, but the affirmation of the basic relationship is just stunning in its simplicity.
One line - "It's in the moments."
Please spare some moments, get this film, and watch it together.
