Remember Me in The Mix Tape’s List of “Five Films Made in the Aftermath of 9/11 We’re Thinking About This Week”   5 comments

From The Mix Tape

As Americans reflect on the 10th anniversary of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, it is a good time to look back on some of the films that tried to capture this moment in American history by giving an on-screen experience to the widespread, unfathomable devastation.
Here are five films we’re thinking about this week as we remember those lost on that tragic day.

Remember Me (2010)

“Remember Me” was not marketed as a film about Sept. 11 or terrorism, but the fall of the World Trade Center does factor into the plot of this love story starring Robert Pattinson and Emilie de Ravin. The film, directed by Allen Coulter and written by Will Fetters, gives subtle hints to the Sept. 11 subplot throughout the film. In the beginning of the film, the audience is told the film is set in New York City in 2001, but it would take a keen viewer to connect the dots, as the year isn’t mentioned again until the very end of the film. “Remember Me” is not a happy romantic film. The story focuses on two lovers: Tyler (Pattinson) and Ally (de Ravin) who are beginning a relationship as they try to get over Ally’s mother’s murder and the divorce of Tyler’s parents in the wake of his brother’s suicide. “Remember Me” will air on TMC at 5:25 p.m. Saturday.
