'Still Alice' Brings New Attention to Alzheimer's


Julianne Moore's performance as a middle-aged woman diagnosed with Alzheimer's earned her the Oscar for Best Actress. She plays Alice Howland, happily married with 3 grown children and a house on the Cape. Alice is a celebrated Harvard professor when she notices a forgetfulness creeping into her life. As confusion starts to cloud her thinking and her memory begins to fail her, she receives a devastating diagnosis: early onset Alzheimer's. Fiercely independent, Alice struggles to maintain her lifestyle and live in the moment, even as her sense of self slips. In turns heartbreaking and inspiring, "Still Alice" captures in remarkable detail what's it's like to live with Alzheimer's.
