It's now on Netflix. WORLD TRADE CENTER was a 2006 release directed by Oliver Stone. You can probably tell from the year of its release and the title that it's a drama based on the September 11th attacks in which New York City's World Trade Center was a target. Stone's movie focused on first responders. It salutes the NYPD and New York firefighters.
I was the weekly film reviewer on Whoopi Goldberg's national weekday morning show the year World Trade Center came out and I reviewed it. During the movie, there's a hospital scene with a mother. The actress who played the mother just knocked me out. She made me sit forward in my movie seat. She was so raw, so real in that performance. She played a flawed person with a flaw we could recognize because she reflected a way we've probably all treated a loved one at some time. She was a highlight of the movie and she wasn't even onscreen probably more than five minutes. Her dialogue as the mother hit you right in the heart with such power than I purposely stayed through the closing credits to see who the actress was. Near the near end of the credits, I saw "Mother in Hospital.........Viola Davis."
In 2008, that same acting excellence made a scene opposite Meryl Streep one of the highlights of Doubt. She wasn't a bit player in Doubt. She had a key supporting role as the conflicted New York mother of a little boy in Catholic school. Her performance earned her an Oscar nomination for Best Supporting Actress.
When World Trade Center was over, I felt that Viola Davis' bit part was easily one of the most memorable things about the movie. Watch it and see if you agree. She is extraordinary.
