|Home: BigScreen Journal - "World Trade Center" Star Maria Bello Says Movie Not a Downer|
Fashion Wire Daily interviewed actress Maria Bello about her latest movie "World Trade Center," and Bello says that even though the movie covers the events of September 11, 2001, it is not a "downer" movie.
“It was the first movie [I've been in] that I walked away from, where I felt such a great and different thing,” Bello said on a recent press tour to promote the Oliver Stone film co-starring Nicolas Cage, Michael Pena, and Maggie Gyllenhaal. “I didn't feel traumatized as much as I felt inspired.”
“I felt just like our movie is about the goodness of human beings to human beings. It's less about the tragedy of that day than it is about the humanity. I found myself, especially after seeing the screening, calling all of my friends and family and saying that I loved them and looking at people in the eye on the street again and reconnecting and remembering our shared citizenship, that we're all sort of citizens of the world. I think that it's the perfect timing with what's going on in the world's stage that we're reminded of that.”
A previous movie about the events of that day, United 93, dealt with the story of what might have taken place on one of the planes that did not strike their intended target, but was brought down during an attempt by the passengers to take the plane back from the terrorists. While praised by those who saw the movie, many potential viewers may be waiting to see the movie or not wishing to relive the events of that day.
