Editorial Reviews

Montine McLeod (Academy Award-winner Melissa Leo, The Fighter, Frozen River) is a gruff, alcoholic, world-weary flight attendant. Omar Hassan (Anthony Keyvan, ABC s Lost, Disney s iCarly) is a prematurely wise, 10-year-old Pakistani-American boy, traveling alone. The two randomly connect amidst the resulting chaos of that 2001 day, stranded by a forced landing in Houston and unable to return home to New York City. Montine intuitively embarks on an unsanctioned cross-country road trip in an effort to help the young Muslim, now unable to reach his father who works in the Tower s top-floor restaurant ... and in the process, discovers her own path to redemption.

It is not a sweet film, but a gritty face of reality, of people facing their foibles and their fears.

I watched it with my 12 and 10 year old boys and all three of us loved it immensely.

This "small" but not "independent" film (it was produced for USA Network cable channel) is one of the first to deal with the issues of 9/11/2001 more than ten years after the tragic event. As my fellow Amazon reviewer K. Harris has detailed much of the plot, I won't repeat it here. (Actually, the less you know about the details of the script in this 86-minute film, the more you will enjoy it. There are enough twists and turns that will be "spoiled" if you know too much. And that's what drew me in.

Let me just say that Melissa Leo (the "star" name on the package) is an airline stewardess (with some serious personal issues - again I can't reveal them and her "dream sequences" at the beginning will reveal themselves later in the film) who finds herself accompanying a 10 year old Pakistani boy (Omar) back to his father in New York City after the Twin Towers are hit on 9/11. They travel by various modes of transportations (all planes have been grounded) and make various stops on the way. Throughout their journey they learn from each other. Anthony Keyvan as Omar will find a way to get into your heart and - at times - shows more maturity than Leo's character.

The DVD has no "special Features" - and, of course, no trailer because it was originally produced for TV. But the film stands on its own and - though the "bonding of two different people when thrown into a difficult situation" is a very common theme, the performances make this a small film worth seeking out.

Travis Fine's well-meaning examination of 9/11 and two specific individuals on the day of the event is filled with good ideas and accomplished performances. It's easy to admire the more intimate and personal approach and to see the event unfold through a very focused viewpoint. And for the most part, it works well. Fine has had the good sense to cast a no-nonsense Melissa Leo is the title role, and she has an edgy energy and hands-off demeanor that keeps the film from descending too far into overt sentimentalism. I think that's why I admired the film as much as I did. It maintained a surprisingly hard edge where other movies would have opted for a different route to completely (and continually) manipulate your emotions. I mean, who doesn't well up with intense feelings just thinking about the day? I hate movies that explicitly use those pre-existing emotions to bludgeon the viewers as opposed to developing a story or characters that actually elicit genuine concern and involvement. That said, I was invested in the primary duo at the heart of "The Space Between."

The story revolves around Leo as a airline attendant. When her flight is grounded due to the national tragedy, she finds herself responsible for an unaccompanied minor in the chaos. When the boy, who happens to be Muslim, reveals a personal connection to the event--Leo embarks to get him back to New York City despite the fact that the country is practically shut down. The two then set forth on a road trip that will push the two disparate personalities into close quarters and mutual understanding (complete with learning moments and the expected intolerance). A lot of what drives this central relationship and, indeed, the primary plot is based on huge coincidences that detract from the naturalistic storytelling.

This film is so wonderful. Thought provoking yet also funny -- and definitely NOT overly sentimental or maudlin (despite its subject matter). I watched it with my 12 and 10 year old boys and all three of us loved it immensely. I would say more, but I do not want to be a spoiler.

'The Space Between', is a quiet film that everyone who lived through the horror of 9/11 should see. Melissa Leo, plays Montine McLeod, a burned out flight attendant, working to keep body and soul together. She is charged on this day to watch 9 year old, Omar Hassan, who is on his way to a Muslim Boarding School in LA. He has just left his father, his only relative in the world, and is sad and scared of this new world. He locks himself in the plane lavatory. Montine has no patience with anyone, never mind a scared young boy. The plane is forced to land in Houston, as the 9/11 horror was discharged. She finds Omar as he is awakens and faces an empty plane. This is where the film really starts.

I would dare you to get through this film without tears. This film brings the humanity and joy back to the lives of those involved. It is not a sweet film, but a gritty face of reality, of people facing their foibles and their fears. Melissa Leo is a force to be reckoned with, what a terrific actress. The young man who plays Omar is also a terrific actor. Kudos to the entire cast. Please see this film, a tribute to those who are lost and those left behind.
