Drama: A team of lawyers try to determine a settlement value for the families of those who lost a loved one in the 9/11 terrorist attacks.

The law firm run by Ken Feinberg (MICHAEL KEATON) is well-known for being able to negotiate financial settlements in high-profile civil cases. So much so that following the terrorist attacks of 9/11, Ken offers his firm's services to the U.S. government and airline industry. Using a formula to determine the financial value of those who perished, Ken ends up serving as the Special Master of the September 11th Victim Compensation Fund.

With the help of his employees -- including long-time aid Camille Biros (AMY RYAN) and former student turned recent hire Priya Khundl (SHUNORI RAMANATHAN) -- Ken's role is to compensate the families who lost loved ones in the attack in exchange for their agreement that they won't sue the airlines.

Needing to get eighty percent involvement, Camille, Priya, and others begin interviewing those family members that include Karen Donato (LAURA BENANTI) whose firefighter husband perished in the Twin Towers, leaving her as a widow with young kids. Her brother-in-law, Frank (CHRIS TARDIO), wants Ken to include shortcomings in the fire department in his report, while high-end lawyer Lee Quinn (TATE DONOVAN) wants him to compensate the family members of high earner victims at a greater rate than those of blue-collar workers.

None of which sits well with activist Charles Wolf (STANLEY TUCCI) who lost his wife in the attacks and has found too many flaws in the fund. With him ending up the unofficial leader for many of those upset families, Ken must contend with all of that, government pressure, and a deadline to hit that target number before the end of 2003.

Older teens interested in legal matters, the aftermath of the 9/11 terrorist attacks or who might be fans of anyone in the cast could have some interest.
For some strong language and thematic elements.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.
