Tuesday, September 29, 2015 at 2 pm – Free

Still Alice - DVD S8571Julianne Moore gives the performance of her career in this heartbreaking yet life-affirming story that addresses a nightmarish circumstance with calm, compassionate sensitivity. Based on Lisa Genova’s novel, Still Alice follows the deterioration of a Columbia linguistics professor who learns she has early-onset Alzheimer’s disease. What follows for Moore’s character, Alice Howland, along with her husband and three children, is a cruel and absurd ordeal that has no real chance of growing easier despite her determination to hold onto her identity.

Still Alice is that rare film possessed with the courage required to shine a light into the abyss knowing full well that down is the only way out.” (David Ehrlich, Time Out New York)

“It’s extremely moving in the gentlest, most linear way, and the other performances are sterling, too.” (Tim Robey, The Telegraph)
