The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks Trailer

“Science took her cells. Her family reclaimed her story.” HBO has unveiled an official trailer for a film titled The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks, adapted from the book of the same name, telling the story of Henrietta Lacks. Lacks died of cervical cancer in 1951, but her cells were taken without her permission for medical research, and they eventually became the first “immortal” human cells. Renée Elise Goldsberry plays Henrietta. The movie follows two timelines, the second involving her ancestors fighting to reclaim her name in medical history. Oprah Winfrey stars as Lacks’ daughter, with a cast including Rose Byrne, Courtney B. Vance, Lisa Arrindell, and Reed Birney.
