Decoding Annie Parker is a movie about resilience, about staring doom straight in the face - with a smile, with hope.

This modest indie with major ambitions is directed by veteran cinematographer Steven Bernstein, making a solid feature debut.

Tears are shed in "Decoding Annie Parker," but they aren't accompanied by the kind of sad, misty soundtrack music that can leave you feeling used and abused. Instead of jerking tears, the movie edifies.

"Decoding Annie Parker," though uneven in its execution, has at its heart two remarkable women and one remarkable performance.

It sticks mostly to one track, taking audience members on a journey that, sadly, via the movies or their own lives, they already may know a little too well.

The film features a wonderfully nuanced performance from Samantha Morton as Annie.

Samantha Morton's audacious portrayal of the title character boosts this mildly inspirational but sentimental true-life drama.

June 30, 2014 Full Review Source:

Powerful if a bit uneven docudrama about cancer, research.

Powered by whiplash tonalities, the film's unwieldy, stacked-deck narrative cycles through a series of tableaux that are largely familiar, frequently phony and sometimes, remarkably, even both at the same time.

The movie plays like something that is supposed to represent a person's life and struggle, or multiple women's perhaps, more than engage with it.

What might have been a great, fascinating real-life medical detective story suffers from a serious plot imbalance and one-sided character focus.

The movie's main point of value is in Morton's performance.

May 2, 2014 Full Review Source:

An outstanding cast, a likeable narrator, and a thoughtful script take this out of the easy tears of the disease-of-the-week TV movie category.

May 1, 2014 Full Review Source: Beliefnet

This is a film that leaves you with a deep appreciation for the fighters of the world, as well as the individuals who tirelessly work to eradicate a disease we'd all like to see vanish forever.

Cutting between the parallel stories, Decoding Annie Parker is exasperatingly slow to evolve into a misbegotten portrait of women helping women.

Tells what could have been a tragic story with wit, charm and heart.
