This was not meant to be a scary movie, but the thought of having Alzheimer’s and losing oneself is definitely frightening. Julianne Moore was incredible, a fact proven by her Oscar win for this film.
To see the progression of memory loss was hard to watch, but at the same time was a wake up call to enjoy every moment of life. This is a film that makes you reflect and think, a rare thing in films these days.
My only negative comment on this movie is the selection of Alec Baldwin as the husband. He cannot act and it was a distraction to an otherwise great film whenever he appeared. His one crying scene was laughable.
Sadly, this is a true story and it is hard to imagine this happening to anyone, yet it did, and does.
This one gets five cigars!
