Still Alice (19/01/2015)
Alice Howland, a psychology professor experiences early onset Alzheimer’s. Still Alice is an emotional force of a film first and foremost thanks to Julianne Moore’s subtle, heartfelt, immaculately empathetic performance. Every slip of Alice’s memory and every glimmer of confusion are palpably clear. Expect to have your heart torn to pieces. Alice, a psychologist who focuses on the way language interacts with the mind, loses herself to the disease at a startling rate. At first, a pause muddles one of the tour-de-force lectures that are the hallmark of her academic career. Director Richard Glatzer suffers from ALS and can’t speak. He directed the film using a text to speech app on an iPad.
