Strong performances on a complex topic.

A wonderful performance from Julie Christie (naturally), humanizing and inspired about a complex topic that does not get enough light shone on it from filmmakers and society at large. The story in the first part centers on Grant's experiences, emotions, and denials. Christie's character handles her fate with class and aplomb making Grant's handling of it a bit exasperating to watch. The turn of events that occur while in the nursing home make for an interesting conversation about our preconceived ideas around Alzheimer's.
