Critic Reviews for Still Alice
It's the intent of this moving film to capture something that for obvious reasons is rarely attempted in memoir or movie, i.e., the experience of the deadly disease from the perspective of the sufferer rather than the caregivers.
The subject matter may be tough, and the end-point inevitable, but the message we take away is defiant and ultimately uplifting.
Writer-directors Glatzer and Westmoreland have written a rich, multi-layered screenplay that works equally well as family melodrama and as a meditation on language, identity and mortality.
While Moore has deserved an Academy Award for years... the surprise is Stewart, who has left the twilight zone and burst forth as a creature of brutal honesty on screen.
Audience Reviews for Still Alice
Very touching and well-acted story of a woman being diagnosed with Alzheimer at a relatively young age. The unpretentious delivery and the everyday situations that gradually follow her mental decay make it easy to relate to the characters and the protagonist's fate. Really well done.
Really well done, but so sad. Definitely couldn't watch this more than once!
Moore is phenomenal in this beautifully compelling drama. There is just something it lacks!
