Stone's WTC to be shown to NYC police
According to the New York Post Seattlepi.com police and firefighters have been invited to these screenings this week, a police union is warning their members that this could be a traumatic experience. Even going so far as to say it could cause post-traumatic stress.
"Emotionally, it's important that these men and women have the opportunity to see the film first, though only if they feel comfortable," said Michael Shamberg, the film's co-producer.
I'm with the movie people on this one, the offer of private screenings is a respectful and honest one (as well as a great marketing deal, let's be honest). To claim that the movie could cause post-traumatic stress is a bit strong, at the most it could exasperate it.
