The May 2 release also stars Bradley Whitford, Rashida Jones, Richard Schiff, Alice Eve, Maggie Grace, Marley Shelton, Chris Mulkey and Corey Stoll. The film is cinematographer Steven Bernsteins feature directorial debut from a script he wrote with Adam Bernstein and Michael Moss.
Loosely based on the life of cancer survivor Annie Parker and the groundbreaking career of geneticist Mary-Claire King, the film tells the dramatic story of two women whose force of spirit defies the odds. Armed with a wicked sense of humor, Parker (Morton) faces down family loss, a cheating husband and her own mortality. At the same time, Dr. King (Hunt) upends scientific doctrine when she discovers the BRCA1 gene mutation, which revolutionizes understanding and treatment of certain types of breast cancer. How the paths of these two women intersect is funny, irreverent, and heartwarming without the burn.
