Joseph Gordon-Levitt Takes On Cancer in 50/50 Trailer

For every time Joseph Gordon-Levitt takes a big studio film like Inception or The Dark Knight Rises, there’s always a handful of indie films like Hesher and Brick to make you remember how good of an actor he can be. And now comes a quirky indie comedy with Seth Rogen, 50/50.1

Plot Summary: Adam (Joseph Gordon-Levitt), a 27 year old man who is otherwise in excellent health, is suddenly diagnosed with cancer. He breaks the news to his girlfriend (Bryce Dallas Howard), his best friend (Seth Rogen) and his mother (Anjelica Huston), who is also dealing with her husband (and Adam’s father) who has Alzheimer’s disease. Each deals with the news and subsequent treatment in different ways. In the middle of it all, Adam also seeks therapy from a young and inexperienced therapist (Anna Kendrick), assigned to him by the hospital, and befriends several older, wisecracking chemotherapy patients (Philip Baker Hall and Matt Frewer).
