Five brilliant artists join forces against breast cancer as each directs a short segment of this groundbreaking movie. “Charlotte” depicts a woman (Ginnifer Goodwin) struggling to say goodbye to her young daughter. The story of “Mia” (Patricia Clarkson) is conveyed through a series of flashbacks. “Cheyanne” (Lyndsy Fonseca) is a gorgeous stripper whose new marriage is shaken by her disease. “Lili” follows an overachiever (Rosario Dawson) who turns to her sister for help telling their mother of her diagnosis. And, finally, in “Pearl,” an oncologist (Jeanne Tripplehorn) suddenly finds herself in the patient’s seat. Also starring Annie Potts, Bob Newhart and Tony Shalhoub, Five is an unforgettable inspiration.

What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this unique movie is actually a collection of five short films about people affected by breast cancer. It contains some sexual innuendo, strong language ("bitch," "ass," etc.), and some limited violence. Drinking and smoking is also visible. A woman's chest is shown after healing from a mastectomy. Despite these mature themes, the overall series sends very positive messages about fighting the disease, as well as the importance of getting mammograms and having the support of family and friends.
