I remember seeing the preview for “Extraordinary Measures” and wanting to see it!  I was thrilled when I had the opportunity to work with Sony Pictures Home Entertainment and review “Extraordinary Measures” on DVD.  “Extraordinary Measures” stars Harrison Ford, Brendan Frasier, Kerri Russell, Jerad Harris, and Courtney B. Vance.  The DVD was released on May 18th and is available in stores and online.  The DVD retails for $28.95.


Fate and determination push idealistic father, John Crowley (Brendan Fraser, The Mummy) into joining forces with reclusive medical researcher, Dr. Robert Stonehill (Academy Award® nominee Harrison Ford, Best Actor in a leading role, Witness, 1985). Together, this unlikely pair face impossible odds as they battle the entire medical establishment and time itself to find a cure before it’s too late. Also starring Golden Globe® winner Kerri Russell, Extraordinary Measures is a true story of the power of love and faith against impossible odds. Inspired by the book “The Cure” by Pulitzer Prize Winning Writer Greeta Anand.

“Extraordinary Measures” was a really good movie and left me in tears in the end.  It was heartfelt and real!  I couldn’t imagine going through the trials that the Crowley’s went through in trying to find a treatment for their children.  It was an amazing movie and I’m so glad I own it!  Thank you Sony Pictures Home Entertainment for a great movie!
