Julianne Moore is in almost every frame of this film, often in close-up, and she makes it mesmerizing. She plays an accomplished linguistics professor, who is diagnosed with early onset Alzheimer’s. Needless to say, with a subject like this the journey is intense and it focuses closely on Moore’s slow struggle to maintain her mind and retain the relationships with her husband (Alec Baldwin) and 3 children. The supporting cast is strong and the directing duo has fashioned a sensitive story. It does occasionally feel the need to provide us factual information about the disease, but mainly stays on course with many downer moments and lots of tears. This is not a great film, but it is a great performance.

 

4 out of 5 stars (4 / 5)
