Meet the woman behind 'Decoding Annie Parker': 'I'm kind of Angelina Jolie of 30 years ago'

Annie Parker lost her mother to cancer at the age of 13. Years later, in 1974, her older sister, Joanie, would be diagnosed with breast cancer. Parker would lose her too. And then, like clockwork, she was also diagnosed with breast cancer. Unlike her loved ones, Parker would beat breast cancer, and eventually, she’d beat two other forms of cancer as well. And that was the story that cinematographer Steven Bernstein wanted to tell in his directorial debut.

After working on 2003’s Monster, Bernstein went looking for another true story when he was contacted about a book manuscript that Annie Parker had submitted about her life. He quickly approached Annie Parker about the possibility of a film, and she was in. “My world was so turned upside down since the age of 13 with cancer that I was really hoping that, either through a book or now this opportunity of a film, that I could get this information out to so many people about being tested and certainly getting awareness and education out to the whole world,” Parker said.

Loosely based on a true story, Decoding Annie Parker follows one family’s history of breast cancer — and the woman who teamed up with scientists to find out if the disease has a genetic link. The film, directed by Steven Bernstein, stars Samantha Morton as Annie Parker and Helen Hunt as the lead researcher on her case.

And in an exclusive clip from the film, we are taken back to 1974, when a food fight goes horribly wrong after Annie’s sister Joan (played by Marley Shelton) admits she’s found a lump in her breast.

The first trailer for Steven Bernstein’s Decoding Annie Parker gave us a lot to think about, from one woman’s journey to discover the genetic components of breast cancer to what Aaron Paul looks like with long hair. And now we have the exclusive reveal of the film’s first poster.

Decoding Annie Parker, which is loosely based on a true story, follows Annie Parker (played by Samantha Morton) as she finds out that she has breast cancer. But after a family history of the same diagnosis, Parker turns to a team of researchers, led by Helen Hunt, to try and find out if the cancer could be genetic. Add in Aaron Paul as a Canadian pool man, along with Alice Eve, Rashida Jones, Corey Stoll, Marley Shelton, and Ben McKenzie, and you’ve got a pretty good idea of what to expect from this film.

Decoding Annie Parker hits theaters and VOD on May 2.

Could breast cancer be genetic? That’s the question at the center of Steven Bernstein’s Decoding Annie Parker.

Loosely based on a true story, the film follows Annie Parker, played by Samantha Morton, as she discovers that, much like her mother and her sister, she also has breast cancer. Helen Hunt, who plays a researcher, then teams up with Annie and a group of scientists to try and find a genetic link to the disease.

Putting aside the medical stuff, Aaron Paul also plays a Canadian pool man — so there’s that. And let’s not forget the film’s other familiar faces: Alice Eve, Rashida Jones, Corey Stoll, and Ben McKenzie.
