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 »

Serious and Heartwarming
17 October 2013 | by pstraub-820-432510See all my reviews

The subject matter is quite heavy but is told with sincerity and real-person humor. The title may seem a trifle misleading since the contact between Annie and the researcher is tangential at best -- they meet only once. The the "decoding" goes beyond finding and sequencing the BRCA1 gene. We witness the unwrapping of emotions and the development of a life-fulfilling spirit in Annie and many of the people to whom she is connected. Some relationships work, other don't, but at its core the film remains true to its belief in Annie's undying spirit. The only negative that keeps my review from being a 10 is that a few of the scenes in which the finding the BRCA1 gene proceeds are stiff and almost formulaic, in stark contrast to the reality of the rest of the film. Go see it and you will be talking about it to many of your friends.
