On Monday, Netflix unveiled the first official trailer for Worth, a drama starring Michael Keaton which will make its debut in select markets on Friday, September 3.
The film from director Sara Colangelo (The Kindergarten Teacher) is based on true events, adapting the memoir What Is Life Worth by Kenneth Feinberg.
It picks up following the horrific 2001 attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, as Congress appoints attorney and renowned mediator Kenneth Feinberg (Keaton) to lead the September 11th Victim Compensation Fund.
Assigned with allocating financial resources to the victims of the tragedy, Feinberg and his firm’s head of operations, Camille Biros (Amy Ryan), face the impossible task of determining the worth of a life, to help the families who had suffered incalculable losses. When Feinberg locks horns with Charles Wolf (Stanley Tucci), a community organizer mourning the death of his wife, his initial cynicism turns to compassion as he begins to learn the true human costs of the tragedy.
Max Borenstein wrote the film, which also stars Tate Donovan, Shunori Ramanathan, Talia Balsam, Laura Benanti, Marc Maron, Ato Blankson-Wood, Chris Tardio, Carolyn Mignini and Victor Slezak.
Borenstein produced the pic with Keaton, Marc Butan, Anthony Katagas, Michael Sugar, Bard Dorros, and Sean Sorensen.
Worth had its world premiere at the 2020 Sundance film festival.
