Paul Stanton is looking for a viable lung
transplant for his daughter because her lungs are beginning to fail
and the organ transplant system it’s failed his family. In Inhale this
dedicated loving father travels down to Mexico and tries to get
into the world of organ trafficking. This is a nicely
paced thriller that really isn’t about if our father is
going to succeed but how far he will go to do so. When
Paul hits Mexico he has only one way to contact the organ traffickers and things just don’t
go his way. Every step he takes to find a way to
save his daughter there’s always adversity, physical,
political, every which way but he keeps going. And as this story
plays out we get flashbacks of Paul and his wife and their daughter
back in the States how they found out how to contact organ
traffickers and how paul got set on his way to save
his daughter and break the law. With the father really
being the main focus of the film it now on Dermot Mulroney shoulders to
bring this guy to life and he does. He’s believable as a man who will
stop at nothing to save his daughter’s life.
We see that in his performance in the small ways and also in the big ways when he’s
confronted with guys who think they can blackmail him, think they can threaten them and he just
won’t let up. And the story is much the same way. It
does not let up. Every time you think the father has
jumped that final hurdle of how far would you go? The film lifts it up another level. And there gets a point where
you’re going to be questioning yourself how far would you go? where is your
stopping point? Because this film does not pull punches even at the
very end. What is your limit? How far would you go
to save a loved one? That’s the question that
Inhale asks. It just frames this question in a
thriller about a father who goes through hell physically, emotionally, and mentally to
save his little girl. This is not a morality play but the
movie does shine a light on the real world problem of organ trafficking.
