    The film tells Annie Parker’s story with heart and wit, and finds a few funny insights into the stubborn, brusque woman, Dr. Mary-Claire King, whose lonely quest to find proof would bear fruit.

  • Chris Klimek

    Decoding Annie Parker is a better living-with-disease drama than medical mystery.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • Stephen Holden

    Decoding Annie Parker is considerably better than the kind of disease-of-the-week fare that used to be a television cliché.

  • Bill Goodykoontz

    Morton is outstanding. The rest of the cast, which includes Rashida Jones and Bradley Whitford, is also good. Bernstein does a nice job moderating the tone of the film, which could have been depressing, but isn't.

    Arizona Republic Full Review
  • Jordan Osterer

    This isn't a film of bedside conversions or radical emotional transformations, nor is it a story about laughing at one's own hardships as a coping mechanism.

    Slant Magazine Full Review
  • Betsy Sharkey

    The division between the personal and scientific stories is not a clean one. It gives the film an uneven rhythm as it at times lurches between the two women's very separate lives.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Glenn Kenny

    Decoding Annie Parker is not a movie to which this critic can give a favorable review. I’d feel more like a heel about it if the movie hadn’t actually irritated me to the extent that it did. Full Review
  • Jen Chaney

    Decoding Annie Parker could have shown much more effectively and deeply that the fight against an often ruthless disease can be won by women attacking it from multiple sides. Instead, it sticks mostly to one track, taking audience members on a journey that, sadly, via the movies or their own lives, they already may know a little too well.

  • Sara Stewart

    Well-intentioned, if ultimately underwhelming, ode to the ongoing fight for a cure.

    New York Post Full Review
  • Ignatiy Vishnevetsky

    As hackneyed as the movie’s portrayal of Parker’s life might be, it seems subtly shaded in comparison to the King narrative, which mostly consists of people in lab coats saying things aloud that they should already know, using easy-to-follow metaphors while pointing to a conveniently posted chart or diagram.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • David Ehrlich

    Cross-cutting the story of a cancer victim who’s struggling to maintain her agency with the story of the woman who’s trying to cure her should compellingly enhance both threads, but Bernstein refuses to take advantage of his film’s structure and draw meaningful connections between the two.
