Extraordinary Measures is a film starring Brendan Fraser, Harrison Ford and Keri Russell. It's about a family living with two children who have the degenerative disease Pompe, and they're searching for a cure. Ford playing the gruff researcher who is willing to help. It's the first movie by CBS Films, and part of it was filmed in the Portland area. You'll see many city highlights, including OHSU, which has been conveniently renamed Portland Rose Hospital. When I saw the advanced screening, my fellow Portlanders got a chuckle out of that one, the rest of you won't. Interview with Brendan Fraser, who plays John Crowley.
