CBS Films hits an inspirational nail on the head with their new movie out in theaters today, Extraordinary Measures.

It's based on the real-life story of John Crowley, a corporate whiz-kid on his way to the top, who suddenly drops everything to quest after a miracle cure for a rare genetic disease (Pompe disease) that is killing his children.

Brendan Fraser plays John Crowley, the super dad who goes to "extraordinary measures"  to save his kids. Along the way, he meets Dr. Robert Stonehill—based on the real life Dr. William Canfield and played by Harrison Ford—whose research on Pompe disease is revolutionary, yet whose quirky ways are reactionary.

They team up for a race against science, drug companies and time.

But that's just the surface of this film. It goes deeper, asking viewers the question, what wouldn't you do for your kids? I'm not a parent, but I was inspired by that message: that unconditional love sometimes makes you take extraordinary measures, no matter the cost.

It's not a movie that kids would take to, so go see it instead with your spouse, a loved one or a friend. You probably won't need tissues, but bring them just in case!

Enjoy!
