Exclusive: Clip From Breast Cancer Drama 'Decoding Annie Parker' Tries To Find A Cure

One in every nine women will be stricken with breast cancer in their life, or in other words, approximately two million women across the next twenty years. You would think that would be enough to make people sit up and take notice, but geneticist Mary-Claire King had to fight to get anyone to pay attention.

The upcoming “Decoding Annie Parker” is based on the true story of King’s work, and she follows Annie Parker, a woman with breast cancer who has seen both her mother and sister die from the disease. For King, Parker confirms what she’s long suspected, that there’s a genetic pattern to breast cancer. And in this exclusive clip we see King, played by Helen Hunt, try and convince someone of her seemingly wild idea, with lives on the line if she isn’t able to see her theory through.

Co-starring Samantha Morton, Aaron Paul, Alice Eve, Rashida Jones, Corey Stoll and more, “Decoding Annie Parker” opens in theatres and On Demand on May 2nd. Watch below.
