Worth (2021)



Critic Consensus: It isn't as hard-hitting as one might expect, but Worth remains a powerfully performed and rewardingly complex dramatization of real-life events.

Movie Info

Following the horrific 2001 attacks on the World Trade Center and Pentagon, Congress appoints attorney and renowned mediator Kenneth Feinberg (Michael 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.

Critic Reviews for Worth

All Critics (94) | Top Critics (26)

Colangelo's directing style is both precise and unostentatious. Here, she has given us a film which is unabashedly full of heart without ever veering on the needlessly sentimental.

September 10, 2021 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

You won't find a larger critique of the litigious nature of American society here, nor even the full story of the fund, but no matter. What's there is gripping and thoughtful, with outstanding work by Keating, Tucci and Ryan.

September 9, 2021 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Watching the bureaucracy shift from a source of frustration to comfort gives the film its arresting tension.

September 7, 2021 | Full Review…

A timely and wise film filled with emotion.

September 4, 2021 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

"Worth" is a powerful drama that engages with profound philosophical ideas while being rooted in recognizably human emotions.

September 4, 2021 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…
Top Critic

Initially legalistic and procedural, but then it lightens up a bit and has some really good performances.
