Members’ Free Preview: STILL ALICE

Sunday 1 March, 11.00am

Don’t miss your chance to see Julianne Moore’s Oscar-winning performance ahead of the film’s release on 6 March!

STILL ALICE (12A)

Directors: Richard Glatzer, Wash Westmoreland.
Starring: Julianne Moore, Alec Baldwin, Kristen Stewart. USA 2014. 101 mins.

Alice is a linguistics professor married to the wealthy, loving John (Baldwin) She is secretly diagnosed with genetically driven Alzheimer’s after noticing her memory failing. The deterioration accelerates, and worse still, one of her children tests positive for the same gene.

Julianne Moore’s powerful, Oscar-winning performance as Alice holds great resonance as she tries to come to terms with her situation and remain positive, despite her fading personality. We see through her eyes and experience the disorientation she feels as the outside world slips beyond her reach. When the light of recognition dims, her family’s determination to make her as comfortable as possible is heartbreaking and inspiring.

Co-directors/writers Richard Glatzer and Wash Westmoreland (QUINCEAÑERA) convey the tragedy of Alice’s fate while affirming the strength of the human spirit in this ultimately uplifting story.

Contains infrequent strong language and moderate sex references.
