Victim's mum upset about Zero film

27 February 2013

A woman whose son died in the September 11 attacks has said she is upset the Oscar-winning movie Zero Dark Thirty used a recording of his last words without her permission.

Mary Fetchet, of Connecticut, told CBS News and the Daily News that she was shocked the filmmakers didn't ask if they could use the voicemail her son, Bradley Fetchet, left on her phone while he was on the 89th floor of the World Trade Centre's south tower.

The movie - directed by Kathryn Bigelow - is about the manhunt for Osama bin Laden and begins with the voices of 9/11 victims making their last phone calls.

Sony Pictures Entertainment said in a statement that the filmmakers contacted several relatives of 9/11 victims about using the voice recordings.

Zero Dark Thirty was nominated for five Academy Awards and won one, for best sound editing, in a tie with James Bond movie Skyfall.
