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.

Starring Helen Hunt, Samantha Morton, Aaron Paul (in a series of ever-changing haircuts), Corey Stoll, Alice Eve, Ben McKenzie, Rashida Jones, Maggie Grace... The cast is pretty solid, so good on co-writer and director Steven Bernstein for that. But the trailer showcases a movie that where cancer is just another opportunity for some quick one liners, with inspirational people doing inspirational things, and a soundtrack that lets you know that in the end, everything will be okay. In short, it looks pretty safe, but maybe the film itself will have a bit more edge to it.

"Decoding Annie Parker" opens on May 2nd.

    This is a wonderful movie in so many ways. An accurate and heartfelt portrayal of cancer made bearable to watch with the director's deft use of humor. The performance by Samantha Morton who plays Annie Parker will surely win awards.
