<p>John Q (DVD) (WS)</p><p>Academy Award-winner Denzel Washington stars as John Q. Archibald, an ordinary man who works at a factory and takes care of his family. But when John Q.'s young son needs an emergency heart transplant--an operation that he can't afford and his health insurance won't cover--John Q. will do anything to keep his son alive. As time and options run out, a desperate gamble becomes the only hope for John Q. John Q. takes an unwitting group people hostage in the hospital emergency room. Now as many in the ER need medical care themselves and John Q. faces off with veteran police hostage negotiator (Robert Duvall) and quick-tempered police chief (Ray Liotta), can a nonviolent end be found to a desperate situation?</p>

Additional Features:

The DVD extras include "Fighting for Care," a documentary featurette, as well as audio commentary from the director, screenwriter, producer, and director of photography. One can also select optional Infinifilm pop-ups that trigger one- to two-minute expansions on the movie. The pop-ups can be simple cast bios, commentary from the actors and directors, screen-test footage, and how-did-they-do-that? setup shots, but many of them are further illustrations of the trials a patient in need of an organ transplant can face. Taken together, they become a more scathing indictment of insurance companies and the American healthcare system than the film itself. --Ali Davis
