Watch the movie Worth with Michael Keaton (2021)

This movie can only be watched on Netflix. It’s rated PG13.

The language warning below is from Commonsense Media.

(NOTE: Both uses of the F-word do not feel gratuitous. I actually didn’t hear the first one until my second time through the movie.)

If you don’t have access to Netflix or you are concerned about the language, you can read the Wikipedia movie summary HERE and a review with some thoughts HERE.

This movie is based on a true story of the lawyer who was tasked with putting a monetary value on each person who was died or injured in the 9/11 attack.

In class, we’ll be discussing how this movie approaches the tragedy of 9/11 and the ethical questions that arise when you have to put a price on a person’s life.
