Julianne Moore is electrifying which is enough to make you watch the film
Best part of watching a Oscar nominated film is that some unique constraint is always attached to it - be it direction , screenplay , story or acting. Now acting is what make Still Alice immensely watchable and Julianne Moore gives the performance of her life time.
Still Alice tells story of an English professor whose life changes after she is diagnosed with Alzeimer's disease. The film reflects the chronicles of life of protagonist post-disease and characters surrounding her life.
The story is pretty simple and straight and yet convincing which is adapted on a novel based on same name written by Lisa Genova. The director-duo Richard Glatzer and Wash Westmoreland succeeds in keeping you engaged for next 101 mins and extract impeccable performances by the star cast for which they should be given full-marks. Show-stopper is certainly Julainne Moore with her award-winning performance. She breathes through the character of Alice as if it was tailor-made for her. You will feel sympathy for her yet encouraged with her dialogues "Live in the moment". Rest of the starcast equally contributes to the film's story. Art direction is good. Cinematography is nice. Background score is tuneful. On the flipside, it could have been best film if little more focus could have been given to the emotional quotient.
Julianne Moore is electrifying which is enough to make you watch the film. Good 3.5 /5
