ABOUT THE FILM:
Alice Howard is a linguistics professor at Columbia University, a leading expert in her field. She lives in a plush Manhattan apartment with her surgeon husband John and has three adult children. She is happy, healthy and seems to have landed comfortably in mid life, until she begins to forget things. Alice is soon diagnosed with a rare genetic type of Alzheimer disease, the effects of which are devastating for her and for her family. Adapted from Lisa Genova’s 2007 bestselling novel, Richard Glatzer and Wash Westmoreland’s film is a deeply affecting drama that is centred on Julianne Moore, who is quite brilliant in the lead role.
Supported by a cast that includes Alec Baldwin, Kate Bosworth and Kristen Stewart, Moore cements her reputation as one of the finest film actors of her generation and is thoroughly deserving of the awards and acclaim her performance here has attracted.
Special screening + panel discussion: Following the 15.45 screening of the film on Saturday, March 7th, IFI and the Alzheimer Society of Ireland will host a panel discussion to explore issues raised by the film, and broaden out to look at the value of film and the arts for both awareness-raising and therapeutic purposes for people living with Alzheimer’s and dementia.
Tickets are on sale now in person at IFI Box Office.
