Worth: Michael Keaton’s 9/11 Netflix drama gets a gripping trailer

Update: Netflix has unveiled a new and gripping trailer for its upcoming 9/11 drama Worth. In the trailer, we find Michael Keaton’s Ken Feinberg going above and beyond the law for those affected by the unspeakable attack on the World Trade Center. Following the attack, some number crunchers, analysts, and people in positions of power were willing to allow the survivors of that day to go overlooked. What the victims needed was someone to listen, to care, and to take those standing in the way of aid and closure to task. Worth aims to tell a powerful story about how Feinberg stepped up to lend a voice to the voiceless.

Per Netflix, here is the official synopsis for Worth:

Following the horrific 2001 attacks on the World Trade Center and Pentagon, Congress appoints attorney and renowned mediator Kenneth Feinberg (Michael Keaton) to lead the September 11th Victim Compensation Fund. Assigned with allocating financial resources to the victims of the tragedy, Feinberg and his firm’s head of operations, Camille Biros (Amy Ryan), face the impossible task of determining the worth of a life to help the families who had suffered incalculable losses. When Feinberg locks horns with Charles Wolf (Stanley Tucci), a community organizer mourning the death of his wife, his initial cynicism turns to compassion as he begins to learn the true human costs of the tragedy.

Based on true events, Worth is a moving reminder of the power of empathy and the value of human connection. The film is directed by Sara Colangelo, written and produced by Max Borenstein, and produced by Marc Butan, Anthony Katagas, Michael Sugar, Bard Dorros, Sean Sorensen, and Michael Keaton. Tate Donovan, Shunori Ramanathan, Talia Balsam, Laura Benanti, Marc Maron, Ato Blankson-Wood, Chris Tardio, Carolyn Mignini, and Victor Slezak also co-star.

Where were you when tragedy struck the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001? I was grabbing a bite to eat at my local 7-11 before heading off to class when I saw the news being reported on TV. In truth, the weight of the situation didn’t really hit me until I’d arrived on campus and saw many of my classmates visibly upset. I immediately picked up my phone and called my New York City crew to make sure that they were okay. In the midst of that phone call, the second tower went down. My friend on the other end of the line watched the whole thing as we spoke. The experience was quite surreal and I’ll never forget it.
