Two Remarkable Women

"Decoding Annie Parker" is a low-budget movie based on the stories of two remarkable women: Annie Parker, a woman that fought her three cancers with courage; and the geneticist Mary Claire King, who believed breast cancer would have a hereditary basis and researched cancer for decades with her team. The intentions are great; Samantha Morton has top-notch performance, but the screenplay is tiresome and vague. My vote is six.

Title (Brazil): "Unidas pela Vida" ("United by Life")

Morton's great

Annie Parker (Samantha Morton) suffers many losses. Her mother, father, and older sister all died from cancer. It's the 1970's. She is obsessed with checking for lumps and eventually she also gets breast cancer. Her husband Paul (Aaron Paul) is a pool cleaner. Louise (Alice Eve) is her younger sister. Dr. Gold (Corey Stoll) suspects a genetic cause but he is refuted by more experienced doctor. At UC Berkeley, research genetic scientist Mary-Claire King (Helen Hunt) is trying to map the human genome but the task is overwhelming. Her team is on a long, winding search for the cause of breast cancer and the discovery of the responsible gene.

Morton and her side of the story is very compelling with surprising humor and infinite humanity. The Helen Hunt side is less compelling. I can think of several ways to increase the tension but her side is inherently less dramatic. It's more scientific and less humane. It could have enlightened some of the science but that may be asking too much. It leaves me to wonder if concentrating solely on Annie Parker would be more intriguing.

Inspiring

Love, science, sex, infidelity, disease and comedy, the wild, mostly true story of the irrepressible Annie Parker and the almost discovery of a cure for cancer. Decoding Annie Parker is a great example of how you can make a film about such a terrible disease and yet make it so powerful and moving at the same time because when drama hits it hits you hard but my only 2 complains about the film were that the comedy was a bit too much at times but then again they didn't want the movie to be dark, unfunny and moody so i guess that kinda makes sense and 2nd after a while we never see her son again for some reason and that was odd. Now as far as performances go i think everyone were good Aaron Paul, Helent Hunt, Maggie Grace and more but the stand out performance and the one who stole the show was Samantha Morton she was amazing and i'm gonna give this film a 9/10.
