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 »

Decoding Annie Parker
26 July 2013 | by valerielandisSee all my reviews

Decoding Annie Parker is an amazing film that not only touches your heart with the core message of breast cancer awareness, but shows us our history of how far we have come in research and medicine to change the face of breast cancer. This amazing combo of Dr. Mary-Claire King's incredible non-stop life work research and with Annie Parker's brave untouchable determination and amazing spirit, they both shines through this truly master piece of a film for a resounding feeling of HOPE.

It took a very serious sensitive topic and showed us the humanistic view of it all. We are people ... it could happen to any of us ... how wonderful is the human spirit when we work together and help each other! We can make a difference! Every person, no matter who you are, we have the ability to make a difference.

Hats off and bravo to the amazing director Steven Bernstein for this labor of love and remarkable devotion to this project! More films like this should be produced! Such a great job everyone.

What a fantastic actor/actress cast on this film! Helen Hunt just shines with a perfect recap of Dr. King. Samantha Morton was a true star as the warrior that Annie Parker really is. Rashida Jones was fantastic as always - love her BRAVE acting abilities! Aaron Paul was a classic perfect rocker fit!

Take away point: A MUST SEE THIS MOVIE!!! Tell everyone you know to watch it!
