Decoding Annie Parker Wins Top 5 at SIFF and Samantha Morton Wins Best Actress
9 June 2013 | by (Dallas, Texas) – See all my reviews

This film has it all! Humorous, heart-touching, authentic performances of the real life struggles of genius geneticist Dr. Mary-Claire King in her tireless efforts to find the genetic link in breast and ovarian cancer--the BRCA gene--and Canadian Annie Parker, a young woman who must face one of the greatest fears of all women. Samantha Morton's portrayal of Annie Parker is brilliant, heart-felt and sometimes, painfully real.

I've seen the movie three times, and each time I get more from it. Helen Hunt's performance of Dr. King is right on target, and the entire cast adds even more depth, warmth and personality to this important work. Steven & Adam Bernstein's script, Steven's direction, excellent cinematography, and an all-star cast combine to create a film that is exploding the awareness of people around the world in a way that both entertains and educates.

On top of that, this movie is changing lives every day. Audiences are giving it standing ovations, and for the next several months at least, the producers have authorized charitable screenings of the movie to raise awareness and funds for breast and ovarian cancer research and patient support. It couldn't be any better! CONGRATULATIONS to all involved.
