Early Oscar Preview: ‘Still Alice’

Still Alice

Julianne Moore as Dr. Alice Howland in “Still Alice” (2014)

This movie is garnering rave reviews from its debut at film festivals–and lots of Oscar talk too, particularly in the Best Actress category for Julianne Moore (a 4-time Academy Award nominee).

Moore plays Dr. Alice Howland, a linguistics professor, wife and mother to 3 children who unexpectedly begins to experience trouble with her memory.  “Still Alice” is based upon the book by first-time author Lisa Genova on Alzheimer’s, and who earned a Ph.D from Harvard University in neuroscience.

“Still Alice” will arrive in limited theaters in December in order to get the 1-week qualifying run for Oscar consideration this year.  The film will be widely distributed in mid-January to U.S. theaters.
