My one-word review:
I really, really don't like to play this card very often, but in this case it's relevant: I was living in New York City in September of 2001, and lived close enough to hear the impact of both planes as they each hit the Twin Towers.
This film was a play first, and that's how I saw it first: as a one-act at New York's Fringe Festival in 2003. I was still avoiding a lot of the 9/11 Pop Culture…
Yes yes okay I know that sometimes other cultures do things differently but how in the HELL do you do an entire movie about a widower father coping with letting his daughter go get married and NOT GET THE DAUGHTER'S PERSPECTIVE ON THE MATTER.
