Did you miss You Donít Know Jack when it aired on HBO back in April? Well, youíll get your chance to see it, but unfortunately youíll have to wait until October 26th because, according to DVD Active, thatís when HBO plans to release the television movie on DVD.
The film stars Al Pacino as the infamous Dr. Jack Kevorkian. Heís 61-years-old and just beginning his venture to give terminal patients the right to die. With the help of his sister and a good friend (Brenda Vaccaro and John Goodman), Kevorkian offers a growing list of clientele ďdeath counselingĒ and ultimately the option of committing assisted suicide. He gains the support of some, but the disapproval of others, namely the county prosecutorís office, and winds up going to court for his actions. Even in the midst of a media frenzy, Kevorkian continues to perform the procedure ultimately fulfilling more than 100 patientsí wish to die.
Having only come across glowing reviews for the film, Iím going to say that You Donít Know Jack is likely worth your $26.98. In addition to the film, the DVD comes with audio commentary as well as a featurette. Commentary participants and a featurette description have yet to be revealed, but HBO did unveil the box art.
