Critic Reviews for Still Alice
While it's no surprise that Moore is so good, "Still Alice" has an unexpected trick up its sleeve: the sweetly gentle performance of Kristen Stewart, as Alice's actress daughter Lydia.
A modest drama, but Moore's heart-wrenching and Oscar-nominated performance makes this a must-see.
The movie is harrowing, as any story about Alzheimer's should be, but Moore gives it an extra layer of gravity and heartbreaking inevitability.
Sorrow-laden and moving, Still Alice isn't gratuitously grim nor is it easily sentimental. There's humor here -- vaguely gallows-like, perhaps but also earned.
The great strength of the film is that it never resorts to cheap sentimentality. The facts themselves are hard enough, crushing enough.
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!
