Rosario Dawson, 'Five'There's a certain stigma that's been attached, and rightfully so in many dreadful cases, to Lifetime Original Movies. But the ambitious breast cancer anthology film 'Five' (Mon., 9PM ET on Lifetime), is looking to change all that. The film empowers women at one of their most difficult times through five interconnected stories of five women at five different stages of life and cancer.

The film is a true anthology, featuring five different stars and directors for each vignette. Directing were Jennifer Aniston, Patty Jenkins, Alicia Keys, Demi Moore and Penelope Spheeris, while their stories starred Jeanne Tripplehorn at the heart of all the stories as an oncologist whose mother died from breast cancer.

Joining her were the likes of Patricia Clarkson, Lyndsy Fonseca, Rosario Dawson and even Jeffrey Tambor. In one awkward, but poignant, moment Dawson's Lili meets Tambor's Mr. Dinlear, assuming he's waiting for someone else who's seeing the doctor.

Instead, she's embarrassed to find out he has the same cancer she does. Even though it's far more rare, as she awkwardly pointed out, it does happen in men as well. It was a nice addition to a story that covered so much ground about how the disease impacts all women and at any time.

Check out star Patricia Clarkson's '5 Things to Know about Lifetime's 'Five.''
