Extraordinary Measures DVD Giveaway! In Stores May 18, 2010

8:46 AM Posted by CalgaryDaddy

When I first saw the preview for this new movie just after Christmas, I was intrigued by the story and thought I would would share the trailer and synopsis with everyone!  Extraordinary Measures is now coming out on DVD and Blu-Ray on May 18, 2010 and the folks at Sony Pictures Home Entertainment have generously offered to give a copy away to one of my readers!

Synopsis:



 Extraordinary Measures, stars Harrison Ford (who also serves as Executive Producer), Brendan Fraser, and Keri Russell. Extraordinary Measures is inspired by the true story of John Crowley, a man who defied conventional wisdom and great odds, and risked his family's future to pursue a cure for his children's life threatening disease.


  From his working class roots, John Crowley (Brendan Fraser) has finally begun to taste success in corporate America. Supported by his beautiful wife Aileen (Keri Russell) and their three children, John is on the fast track. But just as his career is taking off, Crowley walks away from it all when his two youngest children, Megan and Patrick, are diagnosed with a fatal disease. With Aileen by his side, harnessing all of his skill and determination, Crowley teams up with a brilliant, but unappreciated and unconventional scientist, Dr. Robert Stonehill (Harrison Ford). Together they form a bio-tech company focused on developing a life-saving drug. One driven to prove himself and his theories, the other by a chance to save his children, this unlikely alliance eventually develops into mutual respect as they battle the medical and business establishments in a fight against the system – and time.

The DVD and Blu-Ray will be released on May 18, 2010 and can be purchased wherever Movies are sold





As I stated before,  I cannot imagine what it must be like for parents with sick children and my heart really goes out to them.  It reminds me how lucky me and my wife really are.
