Five Lifetime Series

If you weren’t lucky enough to watch the Lifetime’s special ‘Five,’ about women’s experiences with breast cancer, you missed a moving experience.

The highlight of the series of five short films about five female characters whose lives are transformed by breast cancer was the opening film Charlotte, directed by Demi Moore.

No wonder Ashton Kutcher HAD to tweet to his still-wife Demi about her work: “@MrsKutcher good luck tonight! you should be proud!”

Demi did a terrific job directing the star of the series, Ava Acres, who has the heartbreaking role of Pearl, a girl desperately trying to see her mom Charlotte while she’s dying of breast cancer. Little Pearl doesn’t know her mom, played by Ginnifer Goodwin, is sick. She just knows that her dad (Josh Holloway) — and every other family member gathered in their house for her mother’s impending death AND to watch the first man walk on the moon — is determined to keep her away from her mom, who is being isolated in her bedroom.

The film takes place in July 1969 and little Pearl’s experience as a bright as a bright, brave and determined little girl is the link between the other four stories and the films. And Demi draws an astoundingly moving performance out of Ava.

Then Jennifer Aniston steps in with film #2, Mia about a woman (Patricia Clarkson) diagnosed with Stage 4 breast cancer who beats 95 percent odds against living AND survives.

Patricia is mesmerizing as a woman who was so expecting to die that she literally gave away all her money and possessions and destroyed many of her friendships and family relationships.

Five is as much fun to watch for its’ surprise cameo performances by Hollywood icons like Bob Newhart, Tony Shalhoub, and Jeffrey Tambor, as for star players Jeanne Tripplehorn as a grown-up Pearl who becomes a breast cancer oncologist and Rosario Dawson as a young independent career woman who receives a surprising diagnosis.

If you missed seeing last night’s viewing of Five, tune in to Lifetime this Saturday, Oct. 18, at 8pm and midnight, and Sunday, Oct. 16, at 8pm.
