Depressed single mom Adele and her son Henry offer a wounded, fearsome man a ride. As police search town for the escaped convict, the mother and son gradually learn his true story as their options become increasingly limited.
Rachel is a quick-witted and lovable stay-at-home mom. Frustrated with the realities of preschool auctions, a lackluster sex life and career that's gone kaput, Rachel visits a strip club to spice up her marriage and meets McKenna, a stripper she adopts as her live-in nanny.
While settling his recently deceased father's estate, a salesman discovers he has a sister whom he never knew about, leading both siblings to re-examine their perceptions about family and life choices.
Bravo to Bernstein who starts the important conversation about hereditary cancer with "Annie Parker".
Bravo to Steve Bernstein for making this important film that starts the conversation about hereditary cancer. Bernstein manages to weave the "remarkable" Annie Parker's personality and humor throughout this film of serious subject matter; ultimately providing bursts of laughter just when you are thinking you might need to reach for that huge handkerchief to wipe your tears. "A" rated performances from Samantha Morton (Annie) and Aaron Paul. Rashida Jones shines brightly in her supporting role. Heartfelt, humorous, and honest...you will go home thinking about your family and family history. Knowing it is a true story, you will find yourself thinking about the "real" Annie Parker and her incredible spirit--at the very least, for the rest of your week.
