Still Alice

A celebrated linguistics professor (Julianne Moore) receives an Early Onset Dementia diagnosis and, along with her supportive family, must cope with her rapidly deteriorating mental state. Still Alice is no better than a disease of the week made for TV movie, a shameless Oscar bait (which copped Moore a trophy for one of her least deserving performances) where there is absolutely nothing going on in terms of plot besides a woman suffering from Alzheimer's. Alec Baldwin, Kristen Stewart, and Kate Bosworth bring little to the table in supporting roles.
