Storyline

Diane McGowin was employed as an administrative assistant for a group of attorneys in private practice. She found herself forgetting things, especially losing short term memory. She suspected that something was wrong and went to the doctor. After many tests, the diagnosis was Alzheimer's. Diana did not want to tell her husband, Jack McGowin because she thought her husband, Jack, would be worried about money since she made more money than he did. She had to give a speech at a political party meeting, she got really confused and had no idea of where she was. Diana called her house by reading her check book and her son recognized her voice. She was then forced to tell her family that she had Alzheimer's -- which they had known to a certain degree. She later befriended an ex-professor college professor, Dr. Albert Morelli, who had the illness and they began to do things together. Written by Rosemea D.S. MAcPherson

User Reviews

Average drama with a great leading performance.
2 June 2003 | by (Dungarvan, Ireland) – See all my reviews

Looking at the disease of alzheimers, "Forget Me Never" is a subjective view of the problem with Woody Allen's ex-wife, Mia Farrow as the protagonist. She gives a very good performance and actually makes us believe that she has the disease. But that made-for-TV quality is very hard. Other than the performance, there isn't anything spectaculur or in the least memorable about "Forget Me Never".

Martin Sheen doesn't do much with his role that has been seen in countless other movies. The film gets an average score on most levels, as there's nothing remarkable about the camera techniques, script, art direction, etc. This is easy to sit through and easy to comprehend, but just as easy to forget about. It is based on a true story so it has some facts to stick to.

Overall, this is a passable drama. Nothing bad about it but there isn't much brilliant about it. 5.1/10.
