Critic Reviews for Still Alice
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.
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.
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.
Moore's own face starts to become as bare a cupboard as her mind. It's more than the no-make-up look. First, lines of doubt and fear map her face. Then starts to come a blankness like infantilism.
An absorbing portrait of one woman's interior landscape.
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!
