Still Alice

Rated PG-13 101 minutes 2015

Julianne Moore deserves a prize of some sort for her role as a contemporary professional woman and how she deals with what is essentially a long-range slow-death sentence, a diagnosis of Early-Onset Alzheimer’s. Moore’s poignant performance almost -- but not quite -- makes us put aside our impatience with terminal illness dramas, a subgenre that seems to have a built-in fan base that lives to sob through such weepies as Away from Her, Amour, and this effort by co-writers and directors Richard Glatzer and Wash Westmoreland, adapting Lisa Gonova’s novel. If that’s your thing, by all means go and cry your eyes out. Everyone else, watch out – you’ll leave the theater feeling like a sucker. Alec Baldwin costars as the Moore character’s husband (101 min.).
