Great article from the Huffington Post about Lifetime’s new film focusing on the impact of breast cancer. Read an excerpt, below:
Since 1994, Lifetime Television has been a leader in promoting awareness and activism around the issue of breast cancer. Combining advocacy work with the medium of television, they have reached out to their viewership with the goal of informing and galvanizing them. On October 10, they will present the film FIVE, a set of interrelated stories anchored by one main character, “Pearl”—who is seen first as a child and then as an adult (Jeanne Tripplehorn).
The project has garnered top tier talent on both sides of the camera. Executive Producers include Jennifer Aniston, Marta Kauffman, Paula Wagner, and Kristin Hahn. Helming the director’s chairs are Demi Moore,Alicia Keyes, Patty Jenkins, Penelope Spheeris—and Aniston. Participating actors cover the generational continuum, from Bob Newhart portraying a doctor, toRosario Dawson as an independent career woman. Patricia Clarkson, well known in the indie film sphere, brings edginess to her character “Mia,” in a tale that combines caustic humor with hope and redemption.
Getting through the “fear of asking questions, stimulating research dollars, and bringing the issues to light,” were core objectives enumerated by [Executive Producer] Hahn. “We all know someone who has been impacted,” she said. “It’s more than an epidemic.”
