New PSA on living organ donation launches with movie "Going In Style"

NEW YORK, April 6, 2017 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Grab a seat and bag of popcorn; kidney health and organ donation are getting the attention they deserve in a new movie with some of Hollywood's biggest stars. Going in Style, from Warner Bros. Pictures, New Line Cinema and Village Roadshow Pictures, is a comedy about three lifelong friends—Willie (Morgan Freeman), Joe (Michael Caine) and Al (Alan Arkin)—who decide to plan a heist on the bank that absconded with their pension money. All the while, Willie finds himself in a desperate situation as a kidney patient undergoing dialysis, a condition he has kept secret from his family and friends, when he learns that he must find a kidney donor.

The National Kidney Foundation is proud to partner with Warner Bros. Pictures to promote the release of the movie throughout April 2017, which is National Donate Life Month.
