My dear friend Steven Bernstein’s feature-length directorial debut “Decoding Annie Parker” starring Maggie Grace and Helen Hunt is finally finished and about to go out to the world. Here is the trailer.
“Decoding Annie Parker,” is a feature film based on the real lives of two remarkable women.
Releasing Date : Spring 2013
It is the story of Anne Parker, a sharp-witted, funny and irrepressible young woman who watches her mother, then sister, fall victim to breast cancer. When, later, she herself is diagnosed with the disease, she is resolved to fight back against immeasurable odds. The film is also the story of Mary-Claire King, the geneticist whose discovery of the BRCA1 gene and its link to breast cancer forever changed the understanding of human disease. Hers is considered one of the most important scientific discoveries of the 20th century.
These two women are separated by thousands of miles, by circumstance, background and education, and yet, as told in the film, their two lives gradually intertwine until a final, singular and life changing reckoning.
Friends, I had an opportunity to work with Steven on a Hollywood film “One Night with the King” starring John Noble, Omar Sharif, John Rhys-Davies, Peter O’toole and many other talented actors. This film was entirely shot in India with Steven as the Director of Photography. A humble soul and a brilliant technician, he’s the reason, I quit smoking. We also share the same birth dates 🙂
Enjoy the trailer and spread the word.
