“The Space Between” delivers powerful story, performances
USA Network is presenting the film “The Space Between” at 8 p.m. Sunday to commemorate the 10th anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks as part of its Characters Unite public service campaign to combat intolerance and discrimination.
And this movie certainly embodies the message of this campaign and tackles the difficult topic of the 9/11 attacks gracefully.
Academy Award winner and former Tulsa resident Melissa Leo plays lonely flight attendant Montine McLeod who has found herself responsible for a 10-year-old Pakistani-American boy, Omar Hassan (Anthony Keyvan), during a trip to Los Angeles.
When the plane is grounded in Longview, Texas on the morning of Sept. 11, 2001, Montine finds out Omar’s father (Phillip Rhys) works in the World Trade Center and she decides to drive him back home herself to his uncertain future in New York City.
Their journey together is rewarding for both of them as Montine has suffered loss in her past that she is still struggling to deal with as well as issues with her brother, mother and niece.
