Lifetime’s October tent-pole original movie, Five, the eagerly-awaited movie directed by Jennifer Aniston, Demi Moore, Alicia Keys, Penelope Spheeris and Patty Jenkins, and featuring an all-star ensemble cast, will debut on October 10 at 9:00pm ET/PT. A bold anthology of five short films exploring the impact of breast cancer on people’s lives, Five uses humor and drama to focus on the effect breast cancer and its different stages of diagnosis have on relationships and the way women perceive themselves while searching for strength, comfort, medical breakthroughs and, ultimately, a cure. Five’s cast includes Academy Award® nominee Patricia Clarkson (Pieces of April), Rosario Dawson (Sin City), Lyndsy Fonseca (How I Met Your Mother), Ginnifer Goodwin (Big Love), Josh Holloway (Lost), Taylor Kinney (The Vampire Diaries), Jenifer Lewis (The Princess and the Frog), Jennifer Morrison (House M.D.), Kathy Najimy (WALL-E), Golden Globe® Award winner Bob Newhart (Horrible Bosses), Annie Potts (Law & Order: SVU), Tracee Ellis Ross (Girlfriends), Emmy® and Golden Globe winner Tony Shalhoub (Monk), and Emmy nominees Jeffrey Tambor (Arrested Development) and Jeanne Tripplehorn (Big Love).
You know when you watch a Lifetime movie that you are going to go through many emotions. The movie FIVE was no disappointment. The very first short story “Charlotte” directed by Demi Moore starts you off with seeing how a diagnosis with Breast Cancer affects the children. Ava Acres stars as young Pearl and watching her deal with everything tugs at your heart strings. Then later on you get to see her as an adult played by Jeanne Tripplehorn. Pearl is now a Dr. and has to tell people that they have cancer. Pearl ties each story together then is dealt her own horrible news at the end. With each short film you see a different side to the devastating thing called Breast Cancer. Even a man who is diagnosed. Make sure you tune in tonight at 9/8c to catch this great movie and have tissues nearby. You will need them!
