Official Trailer for HBO's 'The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks' Movie

16 March 2017 9:30 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"Science took her cells. Her family reclaimed her story." HBO has unveiled an official trailer for a film titled The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks, adapted from the book of the same name, telling the story of Henrietta Lacks. Lacks died of cervical cancer in 1951, but her cells were taken without her permission for medical research, and they eventually became the first "immortal" human cells. Renée Elise Goldsberry plays Henrietta. The movie follows two timelines, the second involving her ancestors fighting to reclaim her name in medical history. Oprah Winfrey stars as Lacks' daughter, with a cast including Rose Byrne, Courtney B. Vance, Lisa Arrindell, and Reed Birney. This is technically a "made-for-tv" movie, but we're making an exception because this is an HBO production, and they're at the top of their game recently. Here's the official trailer for George C. Wolfe's The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks, from »

He doesn’t like to show his art before it’s finished, but a man from Nebraska named Ken (Reed Birney) wants a look on his visit to London. Since the studio is small and the draped sculpture is humongous, the request is more than understandable. What Harry unveils is truly “awful,” as in the original definition of the word:. »
