Oprah’s ‘Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks’ Casting Calls

The movie, ‘Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks’ revolves around the true story of an African-American woman named Henrietta Lacks. Lacks was a woman whose cancer cells were used to create an immortal cell line known as “HeLa.”

This storyline of this movie is inspired from the author Rebecca Skloot, who wrote the nonfiction book of the same name.

The story is narrated through the eyes of Deborah Lacks (Oprah Winfrey), Henrietta Lacks’s daughter. Deborah searches to understand a mother she never knew. She came to know about the unauthorized harvesting of her mother’s cervical cancer cells which were followed by a series of breakthroughs. The immortal cells changed numerous lives and changed the field of medicine altogether.
