Still Alice (2014)

Director(s): Richard Glatzer, Wash Westmoreland. Cast: Julianne Moore, Alec Baldwin, Kristen Stewart, Kate Bosworth, 101 min. Rated PG-13. Drama.

No doubt that Julianne Moore does a superb job at demonstrating the crushing fear and devastation of being afflicted by Alzheimer's Disease. But Julie Christie had already done this in 2006, in the similarly heartbreaking Away From Her, receiving an Oscar nomination and winning a Golden Globe for it. The real story is, after 4 failed nominations (two in 2002!), Hollywood is prepping Moore for her Oscar win, and this film will finally be the one.
