The movie's main point of value is in Morton's performance.
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.
This is lamentably short of humour. It's also lamentably short of coherence and seems to have been edited by someone with delirium tremens.
There's a passion to tell this story with an understated urgency and profound empathy that can be felt in every frame of this terrific film.
Samantha Morton gives a fabulous performance.
I think it's an extremely worthy film... the performances are very good.
Samantha Morton's audacious portrayal of the title character boosts this mildly inspirational but sentimental true-life drama.
Powerful if a bit uneven docudrama about cancer, research.
This was a great movie based on a true story about a family of women affected by breast cancer.
Despite the sad and serious subject, there was humor in this and I really enjoyed it being set over the 60's - 80's. Annie was really brace and relatable.
I'm surprised the rating on this is relatively low. Okay, it's not exactly a feel good movie to watch over and over, but it really was well done and the cast were all excellent.
I liked her sister, and the (dumbass) wannabe rockstar husband was amusing (up until the point he was too much of a douchebag). Helen Hunt doesn't play a huge role, important to the story, but she's not the lead actress here.
