The Reel Review
Wow. Gut-wrenching, heartfelt and ultimately heartbreaking, Julianne Moore is MASTERFUL in her Oscar-winning portrait of Alice, a linguistics professor brutally transformed by Alzheimer’s Disease.
The film effectively steers clear of the dreaded made-for-TV realm through its frank depiction of Alice’s struggle to stay connected while slipping away from those around her, sprinkled with poignant moments as she realizes what lies ahead. This is an important film that will stay with you long after the credits roll. Have tissues handy.
