Compelling look at the early stages of Alzheimer's
19 April 2001 | by loreguySee all my reviews

My siblings and I all watched this movie as our mom progressed through the initial stages of Alzheimer's. It's a must-see for those with family or friends who are recently diagnosed. We (fortunately) don't see the really advanced stages in this film, and it also lets viewers in on the filmmaker's personal reactions in a very lovely way.
