Decoding Annie Parker is a movie about resilience, about staring doom straight in the face - with a smile, with hope.

This modest indie with major ambitions is directed by veteran cinematographer Steven Bernstein, making a solid feature debut.

Tears are shed in "Decoding Annie Parker," but they aren't accompanied by the kind of sad, misty soundtrack music that can leave you feeling used and abused. Instead of jerking tears, the movie edifies.
Stephen Holden, New York Times, 2014-05-01
"Decoding Annie Parker," though uneven in its execution, has at its heart two remarkable women and one remarkable performance.
Moira MacDonald, Seattle Times, 2014-05-01
The film features a wonderfully nuanced performance from Samantha Morton as Annie.

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

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.
Jen Chaney, Washington Post, 2014-05-01
[A] well-intentioned, if ultimately underwhelming, ode to the ongoing fight for a cure.
Sara Stewart, New York Post, 2014-05-01
A multi-decade drama painted in the broadest strokes possible.
Ignatiy Vishnevetsky, AV Club, 2014-05-01
Hunt and Morton don't appear onscreen together until the end of the movie, which makes this feel like two projects forced to mingle.
