Female First UK reports that: Hollywood stars and film fans were left in tears in New York City on Tuesday (25APR06) at the premiere of a harrowing new movie about the heroes of 9/11.
British film-maker Paul Greegrass' UNITED 93 film left an audience stunned when it debuted at the TriBeCa Film Festival.
But the tears shed were those of pride, not of distress - as the film recalled what happened on board the fateful flight as Americans chose to rush terrorists and give their lives to save politicians in Washington DC, where the plane was heading.
Instead of crashing into the heart of American politics, the flight plummeted into a field in rural Pennsylvania, killing everyone onboard.
The movie made $3.7 million opening weekend, and came in 3rd following "RV" and "Stick It"
