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

May 2, 2014 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

An outstanding cast, a likeable narrator, and a thoughtful script take this out of the easy tears of the disease-of-the-week TV movie category.

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.

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.
