Flight 93 Movie

A movie dramatizing Flight 93 (the one that crashed in Pennsylvania on 9/11) is on its way. The Daily News reports that the trailer brought some filmgoers to tears.

I know it's Hollywood's way to take any tragic / historic / heroic event and turn it into a film. There's no event that is immune from being turned into a film. Also, regardless of when it is turned into a movie, there's also no doubt that there will be questions that it is "too soon" or "insensitive." But this still doesn't sit well with me. Maybe it's because this was so much closer to me than a World War 2 film, but something about this film bugs me a little.
