No. Just don't.
I watched it recently but didn't bother writing about it here because it wasn't good. 4/10. It's a story that goes absolutely nowhere and takes the most convoluted route possible to get to the significant character realization as a payoff. It thinks it's a quirky movie when it's just annoying and emotionally manipulative. It's too long (2+ hours) for the little that it gives you. It's a waste of time. If you need to feel some 9/11 sadness, watch some youtube clips of the news stories instead.
