Tearjerkers are regarded by cinephiles with wariness, but even well-trod territory can work with the right cast, and "Decoding Annie Parker" has enough good people involved to warrant a look at the latest trailer.

Decoding Annie Parker

Not every tearjerker earns its sentimentalism, but even well-trod territory can work with the right cast, and "Decoding Annie Parker" has enough good people involved to warrant a look at the latest trailer.

The film stars Samantha Morton as Annie Parker, a woman diagnosed with breast cancer, which killed her mother and sister. While Annie struggles to overcome her disease, Dr. Mary-Claire King (Helen Hunt) looks for proof that breast and ovarian cancer is hereditary.

Morton and Hunt show some definite promise, but the supporting cast looks strong as well: Rashida Jones, Bradley Whitford, Corey Stoll, Marley Shelton, Maggie Grace -- and Aaron Paul, sporting a hairdo that looks like he's making up for his mop so short on "Breaking Bad."

Entertainment One Films will release "Decoding Annie Parker" in theaters and On Demand on May 2. Watch the trailer below.
