Ladder 49

Academy Award nominated stars Joaquin Phoenix (Best supporting actor - Gladiator - 2000) and John Travolta (Best Actor - Pulp Fiction - 1994) ignite the intense action in this heroic tale of ordinary men with uncommon courage!

As part of a tightly knit brotherhood of skilled firefighters, Jack Morrison (Phoenix) grows from inexperienced rookie to seasoned veteran as he faces a dangerous job that makes him a hero to strangers but often shortchanges his wife (Jacinda Barrett - The Human Stain) and kids. Then, when he becomes trapped in the worse blaze of his career, things Jack holds most important - family, duty, courage - come sharply into focus.
