My husband and I sat down to watch "When All That's Left is Love" on Thursday night, not sure exactly what to expect. We knew generally that the film was a documentary and about Alzheimer's and I, a few days prior having virtually met Eric through the Paris International Film Festival (where the film was featured), knew that the filmmaker was a very nice guy; but that was about it. After watching the film in its entirety, glued to our seats, we were deeply impacted. This documentary will have you hooked; and not because its glamorous, superficial or has lots of bling and action-packed thrills... it will unequivocally capture and hold your attention because it is real, it is raw, deep and powerful. When All That's Left is Love exposes the deep struggles of those who deal with Alzheimer's and the families and spouses who care for their afflicted loved ones. It is not pretty; it is not light. Have Kleenex on hand because you WILL cry. But you will also be inspired, deeply affected and enlightened. I would recommend this film to everyone with a heart and soul. It is transformative and I now have so much empathy and compassion for those who struggle with this debilitating disease. Hats off to Eric Gordon for gifting the world this inspiring passion project and for sharing your father/family's story and the stories of so many without a voice.
