Bringing out the Dead (1999)

This is an imperfect-but-creditable movie. Frank Pierce (Nicolas Cage) is an overworked and depressed paramedic who is tired of all the misery and death he has witnessed. He is haunted by images of a teenage girl he was unable to rescue. One night he is called out to see a man who just had a heart attack. At the hospital, Frank meets and befriends the man’s grieving daughter Mary (Patricia Arquette).

It is based on the 1998 novel by paramedic Joe Connelly. The film was originally released on Laserdisc.
