Based on a best-seller by Lisa Genova, the highlight of this searing, unsparing portrayal of a linguistics professor brought down in mid-career by Alzheimer’s is a brilliant performance by Julianne Moore in the title role, for which she just won the Best Actress Oscar. Despite the pitfalls endemic to subjects like these, the film is a tough-minded look at the effects of the disease that manages to be deeply empathetic without being maudlin or sentimental. The writer-directors, Richard Glatzer and Wash Westmoreland, surround Moore with a first rate cast that includes Alec Baldwin, Kristen Stewart, Kate Bosworth, and Hunter Parrish.—Peter Biskind

“Still Alice is a movie that addresses a nightmarish circumstance with calm, compassionate sensitivity.”—A.O. Scott, New York Times

“The triumph of Still Alice is that it’s not about an illness; it’s about a person.”—Stephanie Zacharek, Village Voice

“Glatzer and Westmoreland don’t need to stack the emotional deck on Alice’s behalf … They just leave the camera on Moore’s beautiful but increasingly faraway face, and our tears come on their own.”—Dana Stevens, Slate

“Thanks to this brave and gutsy actress’ overwhelming candor and sincerity, you go away feeling educated, enlightened and more compassionate than you can possibly imagine.”—Rex Reed, New York Observer

“You bet your ass that Julianne Moore is overdue for Academy love. She’s supremely gifted, possessing the beauty of a true star and the intuitive technique of a true actress.”—Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
