The movie is about a husband and father, Charlie, (Adam Sandler) who loses his wife and three children in one of the plane crashes on 9/11. The movie shares Charlie's story as he tries to process this incredible loss while suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder.
I think the movie accurately portrays the depth of someone's grief after losing a family member. It shows the pain and anger that accompanies a loss. But what I love about the movie is the way Charlie breaks out of his anger, isolation and pain into a place of healing. After years of burying his pain inside him, he finally shares his story in what is one of the best scenes in the whole movie. After attending countless number of counseling sessions where hardly anything is said, finally there is a breakthrough.
I could write more about this movie but I don't want to ruin it for you. I highly recommend checking it out.
