Family Movie Review: Still Alice (PG-13)

StillAlice ChesapeakeFamilyMovieReviewKernel Rating (out of 5): whole-popcorn-kernalwhole-popcorn-kernalwhole-popcorn-kernal

MPAA Rating: PG-13        Length: 102 minutes

Age Appropriate For: 13+. The film is about a woman suffering from early-onset Alzheimer’s disease, and how it affects her marriage, her relationship with her children, and her prestigious academic career. There is some cursing; some kissing between a married couple and a joke about oral sex; a subplot involving the possibility of suicide; and some emotionally rough sequences including the character’s worsening disease, with her forgetting her children’s names, the layout of her home, and so forth.

‘Still Alice’ focuses the Oscar-nominated Julianne Moore as a woman suffering from early-onset Alzheimer’s disease. Her performance is strong, but the rest of the film is practically bland.

By Roxana Hadadi

Julianne Moore will almost certainly win the Academy Award for Best Actress this year because of her performance in “Still Alice,” and she’ll deserve it. As Alice Howland, a professor of linguistics at Columbia University who shockingly develops early-onset Alzheimer’s disease after turning 50, Moore is gripping, empathetic, willful, and heartbreaking. If only the movie surrounding her performance had more to it.
