Get Up that Ladder to See this Wonderful Film.
Remember the classic Oscar-winning film, "How Green Was My Valley?"
What made that film so great was the deep connections of a Welsh mining
family and the people around them.
I felt that same deep connection when I saw Ladder 49. Here we see
firemen interacting not only on the job but in their personal lives as
well. We share their joys and their heartbreaks.
John Travolta shines in a supporting role as the commander of the
firemen. Joaquin Phoenix is very appealing as firemen Jack Morrison,
whose story is the picture.
While trapped in a burning building, flashbacks are well used to show
his life from the time of his joining the fire department, his meeting
with his future wife, his marriage and his heroic deeds.
The stalwart ending of the perseverance of firemen, in the face of
tragedy, makes this a heartily recommended film.
