Adam (Joseph Gordon-Levitt
"Inception") is diagnosed with rare form of cancer and given a fifty percent
survival rate. Adamís best friend, Kyle (Seth Rogen "The Green Hornet"), is a stoner who shares his medical marijuana prescription with his
friend and takes him out to hit on women. Kyle sometimes tries to lighten the
tension and help Adam cope with disease, but he can also be uncaring and selfish, such as when he ends up on Adamís couch naked
with a girl that he met the night before.
When Adam invites his parents over for dinner to tell them about his
condition, his mother (Anjelica Huston "Prizzi's Honor") almost immediately
informs him that sheís moving in. It's because of scenes like this,
that nothing about the film feels either melodramatic or phony. Every moment
is set firmly in reality.
While both Anna Kendrick (Up in the Air"), who plays Adamís therapist, and Bryce Dallas
Howard ("The Help"), who plays Adamís girlfriend, are both remarkable in crucial
supporting roles, itís Anjelica Huston who steals every scene sheís in.
50/50 has not only strong characters, but strong connections
between the characters that builds a perfect ensemble cast. There isnít a
weak link in the chain. With a flawless cast, perfect script and impeccable direction by Jonathan Levine ("The Wackness"), this is undoubtedly one of the best movies of the
