This story touched the world and celebrates the best that we can be. We need it, especially right now. - Tom Brokaw
This lovely feature documentary shows the big heart of the little town of Gander, Newfoundland, when 38 airliners carrying 7,000 passengers were forced to land at their airport after the terrorist attacks on 9/11. Although the Ganderites struggled with the dozens of new languages, they were ingenious in solving the huge logistical problems, like turning the hockey rink into a giant refrigerator. Among other things, the film pulls back the emotional layers surrounding the five days that the community housed, fed and took care of the dislocated passengers (or the “come-from-aways” in Newfoundland parlance). This beautiful, feel-good film ends appropriately with the opening of the hit Broadway musical “Come from Away.”
