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 »
I just saw a screening of the movie in Chicago last night. Loved the dual story telling. Director did a great job of combining these two people's lives into a story in which you can not stop watching; in hopes throughout, that they will find some answers. Both women and men should see this movie!!! Everyone knows someone who has had cancer and we all should be informed. A very empowering movie. Samantha Morton was perfect as Annie Parker. Never once did I see her as an actor. She just slipped into the part and made you route for her all the way through the film. Helen Hunt as Dr. King had just the right nuances. The rest of the supporting cast were well chosen and all felt real. I would highly recommend this film for both men and women.
