(2014) (Julianne Moore, Alec Baldwin) (PG-13)
- QUICK TAKE:
- Drama: A linguistics professor must contend with being diagnosed with early onset Alzheimer's disease and the effects that has on her career, marriage and grown children.
- Dr. Alice Howland (JULIANNE MOORE) is a 50-year-old, highly regarded linguistics professor at New York's Columbia University. She's happily married to John (ALEC BALDWIN), and while she wishes her daughter, Lydia (KRISTEN STEWART) would be like her siblings, Tom (HUNTER PARRISH) and Anna (KATE BOSWORTH), and get a "real" job rather than trying to make a go at it in the theater world, she loves all of them equally and has a good life.
But then she starts forgetting certain words, and when she finds herself completely lost while jogging, she's worried enough to see a doctor. It's then that she learns she has early onset Alzheimer's Disease. Even worse, it appears to be genetically passed, something that worries her especially now that Anna and her husband, Charlie (SHANE McRAE), are going to have a baby. As the condition worsens, Alice and her family try to cope with its effects on her and them.
- WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
- Unless they're fans of someone in the cast or have an interest in Alzheimer's, it's highly unlikely.
- WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: PG-13
- For mature thematic material, and brief language including a sexual reference.
