Forgetting something has to be the most annoying and stressful thing that a person could have, but losing your memory by a disease and becoming coming pretty much brain dead is even worse and this movie plays it out very well, because the movie feels real and not fake like other movies that try to do that.
The story is about a Linguistics professor in a loving marriage with three grown children starts to forget certain words. After meeting with a doctor, she receives a devastating diagnosis, one that will test the bonds between her family.
I always love it when a movie that I never know existed could make me glad I saw it and happy that it exists. I'm always looking forward to the big blockbusters that everybody's talking about and wouldn't shut up about. I always look past those kind of movies that are actually pretty than the entertaining blockbuster's and like always I feel like moron for skipping them.
Still Alice has to be the most extraordinary film that I watched this year, in a way that the movie could had scenes where it would have dragged out or slowed down extremely, but that all was over shadowed by the amazing performance from a Oscar worthy Julianne Moore and the fantastic writing.
Julianne Moore takes this role has a mother who slowly losing her memory by Alzheimer's disease, and Moore knocked it out of the park as she makes a beautifully crafted performance that just boosted up her career as a actress.
The cast members like Kristen Stewart, Alec Baldwin and Kate Bosworth all did fantastic performance as well. Overall the performance were good in the film.
The writing was just spot on great and realistic as well, the directing was good and the film almost had me in tears at parts.
My only problems with the movie has to be the other character's, and I'm not talking about Moore's character I'm actually talking about the background character's that for some reason always get in the way of the story and don't really do anything. The movie to me isn't like the best movie of the year or of all time, the movie falls into the great, not into the brilliant.
Overall "Still Alice" has fantastic acting from Moore and from the other cast, great directing and writing. If you every got a chance to see it I say go ahead.
