With American airspace closed in the aftermath of the 9/11 terrorist attacks, all US bound international flights already in the air had to be diverted, many of the Transatlantic flights going to Canada. Despite serving a town of only 9,000, thirty-eight of those flights, commercial jets, carrying 6,700 total passengers and crew landed in Gander, Newfoundland and Labrador. The airport was built to accommodate jets due to its geographic position as the easternmost point in North America to allow refueling if required. The story of the the meeting of these 9,000 (plus more from surrounding communities) and their 6,700 unexpected guests, most who wouldn't have known where Newfoundland and Labrador was let alone Gander, and all who probably would have chosen any other metropolitan airport to land at if they had known the situation, and their five to six day stay in the area before American airspace was once again opened, is told. In what was a tragic precipitating event, the Ganderites, in true Newfie fashion, stepped up to open their lives and homes in making their guests feel welcomed and loved in their time of need, they largely running on adrenaline in their exhaustion over those five/six days, with many of the 6,700 stating that they had a better time, despite the circumstance, than their just taken vacation or probably what would have been their upcoming vacation at their intended destination. The legacy of those five/six days are also told, from memorial events, to enduring friendships, a marriage between who were then strangers, and the genesis for what would be an award winning Broadway musical, "Come From Away".

I've been following the "A Come From Away" saga since it was announced. I was disappointed that I missed the premiere. It was a great film. I was even more disappointed when I learned that the film was not available on DVD. I was thrilled to hear that a DVD was coming, and was ready to go. I was not disappointed. The film is a must see for anyone who has ever loved a child. I am not a fan of children's movies, but this movie has everything I look for in a child's film. The acting is superb, the story is fascinating, and the film is a work of art. It is a film that I will cherish for years to come. I would like to thank all the cast and crew for making this film possible. I am grateful that I was able to see this film. I was so glad that it was available on DVD, and am so glad that it was released on DVD. I am very happy that I was able to see this film. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you. I would love to see the film again.

I love this film, I was lucky enough to see it at the Tribeca Film Festival. I was very impressed with the way the film was made, and the cinematography. I would recommend it to anyone who loves a film that is original and has a great message.

I really enjoyed this movie, but i can understand that some people might not like it because it's different. I also like that it didn't follow the typical "Scream" formula. It's kind of sad that people don't like this because it is different. I loved the way that the director really pushed the envelope, showing us something different and not staying true to the stereotype. It is a shame that the mainstream has just told us what to think about "Scream." I'm glad that the director and writer/producer/star are going for something different, and they did a great job of it. I give this movie a 9 out of 10.

I've been looking forward to this film ever since I first heard of it. I'm not sure I'll ever see the art house of the decade's best films again. For me, the two aspects of this film are being a part of a true story and being an artist. This film is about the real characters and the reality of what it is like to be an artist in the late 1800s and early 1900s. It's a true story about the creative process and the art that is the glue that keeps it together. I thought this movie was excellent. It had the same realistic feel as the book that I read, so I wasn't surprised by the authenticity. There are some plot holes in this film. I would have liked to see more development of the characters' relationships with each other. I would have liked to see more of their creative process. I think the movie could have used a little more action. The climax of this film was great, but it was a little too long. The characters seemed to be struggling with a lot of things at the same time. I think it would have been better if the film was a little shorter, but it was still an amazing film.

I had the chance to watch this film at the Toronto Film Festival and I must say it was an amazing experience. I think it's the best documentary film I have ever seen. It's about the journey of the film maker, Mark and his family through this story. The film is very informative and it's a must see for all of us who love to travel. The film was also very inspiring. It's a story of hope and perseverance. I highly recommend this film to everyone. Mark and his family deserve the best success in life. This is a must see film and I would definitely recommend it to all of you.

I have to say I was really excited to see this movie when I heard about it. I mean, I am a sucker for a documentary about the life of a famous person. In this case, I was so happy to find out how it was. I found out more about that famous person and they tell us more about him/her. It was very interesting to learn more about how he/she overcame those hardships and came to his/her current situation. It was also interesting to learn more about the city where he/she came to. It was also really nice to see how they capture the characters voices and how they are acting. This movie was also very emotional to watch. I felt that it was sad and yet at the same time it was really funny. The thing that I liked most about the movie was how it was really honest. It wasn't what you expect. The actor's voices were a little soft and it was hard to hear, but it was very interesting to watch. I also think the camera work was great and the interviews were really nice. I really enjoyed this movie and would recommend it to anyone who likes documentaries about famous people.

I first saw this movie in the theatre in 1997 and I was stunned. It was a moving story of a man who was put in a mental institution and the way in which he was treated was very disturbing. It was such a horrible experience. The movie has a great message and it is well worth seeing. It is a good movie to watch with your family and friends. I think that this movie is a must see.

This is a great documentary on a great topic. It's about the true story of one of the most famous rock bands in the world, Led Zeppelin. This movie was filmed at their legendary concert in Seattle, WA in October of 1974. This is the story of how Led Zeppelin became the most famous band in the world. They did not have a big budget but they were able to pull this off. The story is also told from the band members' point of view and how it affected them. They were all very humble, respectful, and supportive of each other. It was interesting to see how they went through the ups and downs of their career and the difficulties they faced. This movie is very entertaining and shows you the ups and downs of their career. The band members were very fun and it was a great time watching them perform. This movie is great and I highly recommend it. This is a great documentary on a great subject.

This film, directed by Joe Berlinger, is a documentary on the film "A Come From Away" directed by Clint Eastwood and starring actor Jimmy Stewart. It tells the story of the famous movie, and how it was filmed. You will find the film has many moving scenes, and a great musical score, which will go well with the film. This film will go well with any people that have seen "A Come From Away".

I watched this movie as it was on TV. The last thing I want to do is to be a part of this type of event, but it just kept playing on the television so I decided to give it a go. The story is based on the real-life story of 26-year old Air Force veteran (Mike Carter) and his mother (Melissa Leo) who have a very close relationship. They lived and worked in the same house in Indiana. There is a lot of similarities between Mike and Melissa. They are both from the small town in Indiana, both have worked for the same airline, both are on the verge of divorce and they both have an 18-year old son and are raising their own child. They both wanted to do something for their community and both were inspired by their son's illness. Both of them are very positive and want to make the world a better place. Mike's mother is now living with her daughter in a rural area in rural Indiana, but their relationship has not changed much. Mike is very interested in the idea of being a pilot and his mother is very interested in the idea of being a writer. Mike's father has died and is in a nursing home and they both feel like the world has lost a good man. Mike finds out that his father is a professor at Purdue University and Mike begins to really love his father and feels a lot of resentment toward the world because he can't be a pilot. Melissa is also a very outgoing person and she thinks the world would be a better place if she and Mike were together. Mike is a very successful businessman who wants to fly his own plane. Mike and Melissa are not very close and they don't talk much. Mike does not like his mother very much, but he doesn't really dislike her either. They have many things in common and Mike realizes that he wants to be like his father and help his father. I also liked the idea that Mike is actually trying to be a better person and he has some positive attitude about it. Mike is looking for his father and he is going to do everything he can to find him. Mike and Melissa's relationship is very close. They are very supportive of each other and they do not see much difference between the two of them. It is not a very long movie and it is very uplifting and informative. The thing that I found the most interesting about this movie is the ending. This is a very emotional movie and it is so powerful and moving. It is a very different ending from most movies that I have seen. There is no happy ending or something that makes you feel good. There is no happy music. The music in this movie is very moving and it is really special. I was very impressed with the music in this movie. I also liked that this movie had a very special message. I liked the message that the two of them had together. They were very grateful for what they had and they were very grateful for their son's illness. I think that this is a very important movie for all of us. This is a movie that we can all watch together and we can all learn something about ourselves. The two of them are very inspiring and they are very uplifting.

I have been a fan of Dolan's films since the beginning and this film is a good example of his "tough love" approach. It is not a "feel good" film and is not "made for you" but it is very realistic. Dolan has created a film that is very close to the truth and very well done. The actors all give excellent performances and the direction is very well done. The film is very emotional and I would recommend it to anyone who likes the work of Dolan.

If you are wondering whether to see this movie or not, then you will need to think about it a lot. If you are watching this on TV, then watch it anyway. I did, but in fact I did not see it at all. It is a beautiful and powerful movie. It is one of the best I have ever seen. The acting was excellent. I think the story, direction and cinematography was outstanding. I think this is a movie that is only a matter of time until it is in the cinemas. I can not wait for the day when I will get to see it again. I highly recommend this movie.

An Australian film about a true story of one of the greatest surfers of our time, Michael Bay. After the success of the first film, Michael Bay did another one of his "real-life" films. It's a must see for all Michael Bay fans and all surfing fans, it's not for the faint of heart. Great soundtrack and great story. You'll see how Michael Bay deals with his failures and how he was the ultimate competitor.

I love this documentary. I am in the US Army and I am currently serving overseas. I was never told why the Army was doing what it was doing. I have a friend who is in the same position and he is also getting into drugs. So I was looking for this documentary to give me an idea of what is happening in the US Army. I was surprised to find out that the US Army is recruiting from the US and Canada. I think that this is an incredible story and it should be shown to as many people as possible. It is a story of someone that can be so different and so beautiful. I love how the documentary is made. It is not trying to tell everyone what is happening, but to give a glimpse into what is happening. It is almost as if they had interviews with each soldier individually. I really wish that they could have found more soldiers, but this is what I got.

If you're a fan of the first film, you'll love this. The cast are all there, and the directors have done an excellent job of capturing the spirit of the first film, and have also managed to create a more entertaining and moving film, which, in my opinion, is what all first films should aspire to be.
