Moore pulls you in and shows you how she is forced to let go

Moore committing fully to a role, per usual. Then there is Stewart who is always a powerful force in any role she is cast. Moore captivates and her supporting cast follows her lead beautifully. A film that centers the loss of memory in a visceral and cruel way. The ability to cinematically portray the deterioration of the mind makes this film compelling and powerful.

Honest portrayal of Alzheimer’s disease.

I watched this with a younger audience (12+) and they were riveted by this unique and deeply moving film. Julianne Moore’s strong performance draws you into her mind then we all experience loss as her character declines. A great movie for building empathy for others and perspective in life.

This title has:

Educational value
Great messages
Great role models
