The premise of Worth — how the September 11th Victim Compensation Fund struggled to figure out how to compensate the families of 9/11 victims for lives lost — would seem perfectly designed to keep viewers out of theaters rather than to lure them in. But there are enough diverse personalities in this unexpected film to generate a degree of interest in a subject few have probably ever thought about. A fine and uncharacteristic performance by Michael Keaton provides the main selling point for this intelligent if not entirely realized political film that emphasizes the human value of closure and pulling together in tough times.Worth 2021 Movie Download.
There are now people of legal age who don’t remember 9/11 personally but nevertheless, director Sara Colangelo (Little Accidents and The Kindergarten Teacher, both previous Sundance entries) doesn’t dwell on overly vivid or extended footage repeating yet again the horrors of the dreadful day nearly 19 years ago.Rather, her attention fixes on an attorney, Kenneth Feinberg (Keaton), a real-life mediation expert who is paged to oversee a program that, it is hoped, will provide fair compensation to families that have suddenly lost their breadwinners or other loved ones.
The subject of reimbursement and placing a monetary value on a human life is a contentious one where raw emotions are certain to further exacerbate the anger, fear and desolation caused by such an unprecedented tragedy. Colangelo and screenwriter Max Borenstein, who is mostly known for his writerly contributions to the last three Godzilla features, with one more on the way, even-handedly present the various reactions of those whose feelings are still too raw to deal with the blunt question of how much cash their parent, mate or child is worth.
