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

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.

Audience Reviews for Decoding Annie Parker

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.

The bad critical reviews are shocking to me as this movie is made to please the critics' taste. It's an inspiring true story with an emotional subplot, Helen Hunt leads the cast with talented performances, and it's filmed beautifully. It is dragging and melancholy but then again most Oscar movies are.
