Dr. Alice Howland (Julianne Moore) is a renowned linguistics professor at Columbia University. When words begin to escape her and she starts becoming lost on her daily jogs, Alice must come face-to-face with a devastating diagnosis: early-onset Alzheimer's disease. As the once-vibrant woman struggles to hang on to her sense of self for as long as possible, Alice's three grown children must watch helplessly as their mother disappears more and more with each passing day.

  • 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.

    March 8, 2015 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • 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.

    March 6, 2015 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • 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.

    March 6, 2015 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • The material hasn't been properly reimagined for cinema.

  • The reality of Alzheimer's may be even harsher than its presentation here but that would surely make a film that would only dismay its viewers.

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.

    Very sad, but also very powerful. Still Alice is an inside look on how those with Alzheimer's disease and those related to anyone with the disease, and how it affects everyone.
