Julianne Moore Looks Oscar Worthy in the First Trailer for 'Still Alice'
"I don't know what I'm going to lose next." After premiering at the Toronto International Film Festival this past fall, the drama Still Alice is entering the Oscar race with an awards qualifying theatrical run on screens in New York and Los Angeles right now. It won't get a wider release until January, but in the meantime, you can check out the first trailer for the film that sees Julianne Moore playing a Columbia University professor whose life begins to crumble as she gets diagnosed with early onset Alzheimer’s disease. Moore has been buzzed about for a Best Actress nomination, and you can clearly see why. Watch!
Here's the trailer for Richard Glatzer & Wash Westmoreland's Still Alice, originally from Yahoo:
Still Alice is written and directed by Richard Glatzer & Wash Westmoreland (The Last of Robin Hood). A successful Columbia University professor (Julianne Moore of Boogie Nights, Don Jon, Crazy Stupid Love) struggles to maintain her mind and self after being diagnosed with early onset Alzheimer’s disease, which means losing her way around the streets of Manhattan to start, but soon — far too soon for her husband and three grown children (Alec Baldwin, Kristen Stewart, Kate Bosworth, Hunter Parrish) — it costs much more. Still Alice is playing in New York and Los Angeles now and expands next year on January 16th, 2015.

I'll be seeing this film. My Dad is in his 4th year of diagnosed AD, beginning at age 64. We've back-traced 2-3 years before that, where he was able to hide the symptoms at the time. A truly horrific disease, and sadly, one that everyone will be intimately familiar with by 2050. By that time, everyone in the world will personally know someone with Alzheimer's or another form of dementia. Perhaps this movie will spur further talk, and demands for action *before* the system collapses under the increasing strain of the afflicted & their caregivers, for whom there is little to no 'system' support.
