Default Film 'look' from digital

I have a friend who has been a professional photographer for many years, mostly shooting medium format. He recently started using a Canon 20d. A major issue for him is the quality of the color. He would really like to find a way to process the images to achieve the 'look' that he is used to from negative film. It has to do with color balance and saturation. To his eye, the digital images are not as 'real' as what he got from film.

He understands that many of his clients are perfectly happy with the digital images, but being able to achieve the look he likes would give him the best of both worlds.

I am looking for suggestions of Photoshop plug-ins that might be helpful to him? Or books that would guide him?
