FIVE, an original movie premiering on Lifetime next Monday, October 10, is probably the best and most moving made-for-television movie that I have ever seen, and even ranks pretty high comparing it to theatrical movies. This anthology of Five stories dealing with breast cancer, directed by celebrities such as Jennifer Aniston, Demi Moore and Alisha Keys, hit every emotion perfectly.

The Five stories are connected by one character, Pearl, played by Jeanne Tripplehorn except for the first story where Pearl is a child, played amazingly by Ava Acres. Other cast members, all of which were fantastic, include Rosario Dawson, Lyndsy Fonseca, Ginnifer Goodwin, Josh Holloway, Taylor Kinney, Jenifer Lewis, Jennifer Morrison, Kathy Najimy, Bob Newhart, Tracee Ellis Ross, Tony Shalhoub, Jeffrey Tambor, Annie Potts and Patricia Clarkson, one of today's best actresses, yet this may have been her best performance yet.
Jennifer Aniston has been pivotal in getting this important movie about breast cancer created. She is not only one of the directors, but she also served as executive producer. She has been working hard promoting FIVE in the media. Tune into The View this Friday 10/7 to see Aniston, Demi Moore and Alicia Keys discuss this groundbreaking movie.
