Based on the true story of the creation and administration of the September 11th Victim Compensation Fund, this Michael Keaton starrer is heady stuff and dominated by talking heads in conference rooms, but don’t let that deter you. And, yes, it may be written by Godzilla vs. Kong’s Max Borenstein, but Worth is in the same neighborhood as Spotlight and Erin Brockovich as a smart, character-driven drama with an emotional core. Stanley Tucci, Amy Ryan, and Laura Benanti shine in supporting roles.

4/5 stars
