I have a lot less patience with films these days and took out three duds really; actually watched this all the way. Blah. Thru the decades, a researcher [Helen Hunt, not given much to work with] tries to find a breast cancer gene as a woman lives her life as she survives multiple outbreaks (her mom/sis [and separately, her ex!] not so lucky). Samantha Morton is very good but the film as a whole is very garbled. A lot of "hey! that's" in the cast.
