Decoding Annie Parker
One in every nine women will be stricken with breast cancer in their life, or in other words, approximately two million women across the next twenty years.

Decoding Annie Parker
A serious subject deserves serious treatment, and you'd think that "Decoding Annie Parker"—based on the true story of Mary Claire King, a geneticist who discovered a gene linked to breast cancer—would perhaps play things with a bit of gravitas. Instead, the music alone in this trailer seems like it belongs in an ad for frozen yogurt.

After playing the role of “Hard 10” in “She’s Out of My League,” and having her entire “Sex and the City 2” subplot revolve around whether or not her character wore a bra, it’s nice to see Alice Eve take on a role that requires some acting. The British thespian has just signed on to “Decoding Annie Parker,” based on a true story in which Samantha Morton plays the titular role of Parker, a woman who gets cancer and tries to fight it alongside geneticist Mary Claire King (Helen Hunt), who ends up discovering a gene linked to breast cancer. Eve will play a former friend of Parker, who has an affair with her husband, causing them to divorce.
