Really amazing movie. Hadn't seen such a touching movie in a very long time. I still think about it a lot even weeks later.
Terrific acting by Moore and suitably rewarded.
I found this movie very touching at the end with some tears but it was well done!! I hope Julianne Moore gets an Oscar for this movie
We snuck out after approximately 10 minutes because of the lack of anything interesting for us. Would not recommend this movie for the younger generation even though rated pg.
AMAZING MOVIE WITH HEART-FELT PERFORMANCES, JULIANE MOORE DESERVED THE OSCAR & GOLDEN GLOBE.
my husband and I just watched this movie tonight and really enjoyed it. It is such a realistic portrayal of the beginnings of the disease as well as the pain endured by everyone around them. My only regret was not bringing Kleenex, definitely a tear jerker. Both Julianne Moore and Alec Baldwin were amazing.
As the primary family care-giver of an Alzheimer's patient, this movie touched a very emotional chord in me. Julianne Moore did an outstanding portrayal of the character (and SO deserving of the Oscar she received). Reading the comments from other viewers I suggest that if the entire scope of the disease were to be represented the movie would have to be hours longer...
I would recommend this as a good movie to watch, but although it lightly touched on a few aspects of Alzheimer's Disease, it would have been nice for the producers to touch on the advanced stages (how frustrations lead to rage/violent tendencies, the importance of safety in the home, loss of appetite) etc...
As the spouse of a wonderful woman who is on the Alzheimers' journey, I found this movie to be incredibly interesting and realistic.
Julienne Moore is fantastic, hope she wins an Oscar. Movie well done, although sad, it is reminder to all of us to cherish life and health, because what happen to her it could happen to any of us...Great acting cast.
