DC 9/11: Time of Crisis
This docudrama gives an insider look at the Bush White House on September 11, 2001 and the days that followed, which culminated with the President’s speech to a joint session of Congress and the nation, nine days later. This has resulted in the events being presented with accuracy while still engaging the audience.
The events are presented with depth and I was grateful there wasn’t an iota of the producer’s personal agenda/viewpoints intertwined in any of the dialogue. The actors resemble their real-life counterparts very effectively. I didn’t find the language offensive: this is the way men speak when under intense pressure and stress. As horrific as those days in 2001 were, I was grateful to see how well this country really works and holds together in times of great crisis. I found their portrayal of President Bush to be sensitive and humble, while still showing him as the Commander in Chief. The producer and director are to be commended for this production.
