Did You Know?

Goofs

Annie Parker's son, William, is born in November, 1973. From June 5, 1975 to January, 1978 in the film's timeline, the character is played by Benjamin James Stockham, who is credited as Young William (8). However, the character would have been between 1 and 4 during the dates listed in the movie. Benjamin Stockham looked young for his age, but not young enough to play a toddler! The movie jumps ahead five years later (presumably to 1983), with Ryan Wynott cast as Young William (12), but he wouldn't have been 12 yet. Even if we take the William character's ages - 8 and 12 - at face value, the math still doesn't add up with a five year time-jump. Ironically, Ryan Wynott is only a few months older than Benjamin Stockham despite being credited as four years older. See more »

Half movie, half documentary, the story of most crucial scientific discovery.
14 August 2016 | by Reno-RanganSee all my reviews

The film was inspired by the real life stories of the two women from the same timeline who had no connections, except theirs involvement with something. That means there are two sets of stories that's told one after another in parts which covered the events from nearly the three decades. So it all begins in the 1960, where two little sisters promise to each other about something, but 10 years later one of their's life changed forever when another one dies of cancer. So this is the story where the other sister begins her fight against the disease that took her family away.

This is a small budget film that shot entirely within a month of time. There are lots of actresses in this, even for the small roles. I thought Helen Hunt would lead the narration, but then there were Maggie Grace, Alice Eve, Aaron Paul and others. Great dedications by all, but this was Samantha Morton's film.

I did not know what this story is about when I decided to watch, but I'm pretty happy for the film. Except the material was more a documentary suitable kind, especially the story of Helen Hunt's character. Moreover feels like it is a short film with a decent story. I think it is worth a watch because of unfolding an important scientific discovery of our time. So a big yes on that perspective, but entertainment wise it is just an average. Now you can decide this on what you're seeking.

7/10
