Now Playing Synopsis: Written by Will Reiser who based the film on his own experiences fighting cancer, Jonathan Levine's poignant comedy 50/50 stars Joseph Gordonn-Levitt as Adam, a 27-year old public radio employee who discovers he has cancer.

Matt Frewer and Philip Baker Hall co-star as Adam's fellow chemotherapy patients. ~ Perry Seibert, Rovi Cast: Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Seth Rogen, Anna Kendrick, Bryce Dallas Howard, Anjelica Huston Movie Details Play Trailer Buy Tickets Movie Review
