A real, real, real heartbreaking tear-jerker!!!!!!
9 April 2003 | by bthcrlsolSee all my reviews

Joanne Woodward and Richard Kiley were superb in their roles as Barbara, the afflicted victim of the dreaded disease, and her loving, supportive husband, George. My heart really went out to them. I practically felt their suffering and pain. I wanted to help them myself. I felt like giving them, especially George, advice. They portrayed a happily married couple. Barbara was a college professor. And then BOOM!!!! Alzheimer's disease. Geraldine Fitzgerald, who portrayed Barbara's mother, Lorraine, was especially a heart-breaker, since she had to see her own daughter suffer the way she did. Though I am not a mother, I could still imagine her torment. It is just like watching your own child die, except this was worse--seeing your own daughter slipping into mentally incapacitation and you simply CANNOT to do anything about it. You are completely helpless. All the characters were and I, personally, felt so horribly bad for them, being they were a happy, well-adjusted family! However, I felt the conclusion, though I do NOT want to give it away, was ineffectual and inadequate. I knew it would NOT end on a positive note, but I was still disappointed. However, the acting was so authentic, believable, and convincing, that I actually felt like saying a prayer for this "family."
