We are delighted to be showing Still Alice to promote Dementia Awareness Week.

Julianne Moore gives an Oscar-winning performance as Best Actress in this heart-breaking drama of life and loss. Fifty-year-old Alice Howland (Julianne Moore) leads a busy life as a Columbia University linguistics professor and mother of three. But lately she’s been suffering from worrying mental lapses. Without telling her family, she decides to go for neurological tests. She then receives a devastating diagnosis: she has early-onset Alzheimer’s disease. Even worse, her condition is genetic and her children stand a 50% chance of inheriting it. Alice struggles to hold on to her identity and dignity, with the support of her loving husband John (Alex Baldwin). As she makes the bold decision to live in the moment, she also reconnects with her aspiring actress daughter Lydia (Kristen Stewart). Writer/director duo Richard Glatzer and Wash Westmoreland’s adaptation of Lisa Genova’s novel is a searingly honest portrayal of this cruellest of diseases. It is also an extremely moving and uplifting tale of courage.

Stars: Julianne Moore, Alec Baldwin, Kate Bosworth and Kristen Stewart.
