Inhale – Movie Review


A couple goes to dangerous lengths to find a lung donor for their daughter.


Inhale is a really interesting movie that stars Dermot Mulroney in which he plays a father who’s daughter is dying of lung disease. After not receiving a transplant he decides to go to Mexico and track down where he can actually get an illegal transplant.  The movie is clearly well meaning and intense and torn from the headlines, Sam Shepard plays his boss, Diane Kruger plays his wife and Dermot is downright wonderful in this.  I mean on the one hand the movie is really improbable, that Dermot sort of turns into James Bond and is fighting bad guys and jumping up on roofs, whatever; on the other hand it certainly dramatizes an important issue which is organ donations and what they call organ tourists, people that go to another country to get illegal organs.  So it is a very interesting movie.  As I said, it’s a little unbelievable, a little improbable, but not a bad movie and Dermot is very good in it so I give it three and a half stars.
