I'm not a fan of movies or documentaries that tell a story in bits and pieces or flashbacks. It disrupts the flow of the storyline and I think it's a cheap, lazy trick the writer and producer does to avoid providing a meaningful story. Unfortunately, I still only know a few things about the subject. I know what happened to her cells & what happened to her children after her death. I don't know much more about her than I did before I watched the movie. I am glad that her legacy is being recognized for helping millions of people.
