World Trade Center

Today marks 18 years since the 9/11 attacks. Since then, countless films, TV shows and documentaries about the attacks have been made, as the world continues to attempt to process this horrific tragedy. Some successfully honor the many lives lost. Others lean into exploitative and Islamaphobic Hollywood tropes. Some help document the event for those too young or too removed to remember the day. And some offer a perspective that is often overlooked.

The 9/11 attacks are still a fresh wound for many, and everyone has their own way of coping. Though some might lean away from a Hollywood version of the tragedy, others might find catharsis in watching the events play out on screen. Below are five films, one miniseries, and one comedy special that offer a diverse range of takes on that terrible day in American history. There are straight-forward biopic dramas from acclaimed directors, like Oliver Stone’s World Trade Center and Paul Greengrass’s United 93.  There fictionalized takes, like Mike Binder’s Reign Over Me, which stars Adam Sandler as a grief-stricken man who lost his family in the attack. And there are thought-provoking documentaries like Rebirth, a film that followed five people whose lives were forever changed on 9/11 for ten years.

Here are seven movies and shows about 9/11 that are available to watch on streaming right now.
