Based on a true story, Decoding Annie Parker follows Annie Parker (played by Samantha Morton), a cancer survivor seeking to understand why the women in her family keep getting breast cancer, and Dr. Mary-Claire King (played by Helen Hunt), a geneticist whose years of work led to the discovery of the BRCA genes that are now known to indicate an increased risk of breast and ovarian cancer. The cast also includes Aaron Paul, Rashida Jones, Richard Schiff, and Maggie Grace. Looks to be very interesting!
Here is a recent article about the movie from the Seattle Times.
