Blood Work (film)

Blood Work is a 2002 mystery suspense thriller starring Clint Eastwood, Jeff Daniels, Wanda De Jesus and Anjelica Huston. Eastwood also directed.

Eastwood won the Future Film Festival Digital Award at the Venice Film Festival. It is loosely based on the 1998 novel by the same name from Edgar Award-winning writer Michael Connelly.


Terry McCaleb (Eastwood) is an ailing veteran FBI agent who's been given a second chance at life by receiving the heart of a murder victim. Terry is visited by the murder victim's sister (De Jesus), reminding him that he is alive only because of receiving the deceased's heart, and asks him to investigate who killed her. He later finds out that someone is killing people who are registered as organ donors.
