"Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Seth Rogen team up to beat the odds in a film that Rolling Stone calls ""achingly hilarious and heartfelt."" Diagnosed with spinal cancer, 27-year-old Adam (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) navigates the road to recovery with the sometimes overbearing support of his crude best friend (Rogen), his smothering mother (Anjelica Huston) and an inexperienced therapist (Anna Kendrick). Inspired by the true story, 50/50 is an honest yet hysterically funny account of a young man's journey toward healing."
Adam tries to maintain an optimistic outlook in the face of the reactions of his best friends and his mother to the news that has a fifty-fifty chance of surviving cancer.
