About the Film
Inspired by a true story, 50/50 is an original story about friendship, love, survival and finding humor in unlikely places. Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Seth Rogen star as best friends whose lives are changed by a cancer diagnosis in this comedy directed by Jonathan Levine from a script by Will Reiser. 50/50 is the story of a guy’s transformative and, yes, sometimes funny journey to health – drawing its emotional core from Will Reiser’s own experience with cancer and reminding us that friendship and love, no matter what bizarre turns they take, are the greatest healers. Starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Seth Rogen and Anna Kendrick.
All proceeds from ticket sales to 50/50 go to the Park City Thank You Fund. The goal of the fund is to raise $50,000 for cancer research at Huntsman Cancer Institute (HCI). Once the goal is reached, a patient room at HCI will be named The Park City Community Room. Through the generosity of many Parkites affected by cancer, over $34,000 has already been raised for the fund. Recently, The Playing for Life Foundation has offered a $8,000 matching grant to the fund. So every dollar raised at this screening is doubled!
