A Connecticut woman whose son died in the Sept. 11 attacks at the World Trade Center says she's upset the Oscar-winning movie "Zero Dark Thirty" used a recording of his last words without her permission.

Mary Fetchet of New Canaan told CBS News and the Daily News this week 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 Center's south tower.

The movie about the manhunt for Osama bin Laden 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.


idk you have to think about people that are 18 and went to see this. I know I'm 22 and I was blocked from seeing 9/11 news when it happened.

I'm not saying they shouldn't be there, i'm saying they were hard to listen to. again. once or the tenth time it was hard.

And I was just commenting on the 'i don't think any of us forgot....' comment. Since many of the viewers could very well have been too young to get it.

They didn't have it on in your school?

I was in 7th grade and since we're 2 hours behind the East Coast I guess a lot of students already heard and the principal made announcements and everything and we ended up watching the news in my classes

I lived on the East Coast in a military town and our school went on lock down. Teachers were called to the hall and parents were called. My mom came and got me and we had family members that were first responders at the Pentagon.

i was in 4th grade and i saw everything live on tv in my classroom

i always go back and forth on wishing i hadn't

My mom would have whooped some ass tbqh.

I was in 5th grade and my teacher rolled in a tv and had us watch it live but i think it's only because we were in history class and he knew that it was going to be apart of history.

I was in 3rd grade and my teacher and everyone was talking about it. I don't remember if it was on 9/11 or the day after but I remember seeing the twin towers burning on the class room television and feeling very sad, even though I didn't fully understand the situation at that time

They didn't at mine, and I was in 7th grade. We weren't even fucking allowed to talk about it. My school was ridiculous.

we weren't allowed to talk about it at my school either. i remember listening to it on the radio on the bus on the way to school and just having NO idea what happened or what was going on until i got home.

lol well you have to think about those that do remember

also, my sister is 18 and she remembers, and she was in second grade

I actually am 18 and my parents let my brother and I watch all the news programs with them. I remember all of it really vividly, along with how airport security used to be since we've always traveled a lot. It's still crazy for me to realize how young I was at the time considered how well I remember it.
