"Decoding Annie Parker" is based on the true story of Dr. Marie-Claire King (played by Helen Hunt), a geneticist who discovered the BRCA1 and BRCA2 mutations that are linked to breast cancer. The film also stars Samantha Morton as Anne Parker, a young woman who develops breast cancer. The two of them meet and talk about cancer and scientific research. It is rare enough to have a film starring women, but for one of them to be a scientist probably hasn't been done since the movie about Marie Curie. Unfortunately the film is in limited release.
