Event Description


Helen Hunt, Samantha Morton and Aaron Paul star in this heartwarming story based on true events. Annie Parker (Morton) has a personal relationship with breast cancer. Her mother and sister died of the disease and ultimately she is dealing with her own diagnosis. Meanwhile UC Berkeley geneticist Mary-Claire King (Hunt) is convinced there is a link between DNA and cancer, even if few in her profession believe that some cancers may be hereditary. With grace and humor the film chronicles how these remarkable women work toward one of the most important genetic discoveries of the 20th century. With Alice Eve, Rashida Jones, Richard Schiff, Bradley Whitford. Director: Steven Bernstein. (US 2013) 99 min.
