Still Alice >> 30s review

Alice Howland (Julianne Moore) is leading a happy life as a linguistics professor and three happy grown up kids. All of a sudden she starts forgetting words, and gradually other things - a case of early onset Alzheimer's. Her whole happy life is ripped apart.

The movie is about how she and the people she loves cope (or fail to!) with the changes that follow. Gradually, she heads towards the inescapable end - while dementia destroys her life by affecting things which we take for granted!

Rating: Yellow - a well-made movie about the struggles of an Alzheimer's patient, yellow only because it is sad, very sad. Much more dramatic in this case due to the early and sudden appearance. There are some movies that urge you to stop where you are and live - this is one of them.
