Watch: Best Actress Frontrunner Julianne Moore Fights Alzheimer's Disease in 'Still Alice' Trailer

The versatile and fearless Julianne Moore has been topping Best Actress prediction lists across the board ever since “Still Alice” premiered at the 2014 Toronto International Film Festival in September, and now viewers can preview what all the fuss is about in the drama’s first trailer.

Written and directed by Richard Glatzer and Wash Westmoreland, “Still Alice” stars Moore as Dr. Alice Howland, a revered linguistics professor at Columbia University who gets diagnosed with early onset Alzheimer’s disease. As the disease slowly and painfully causes Alice to lose her sense of self and sends her family into turmoil, Moore’s soul-shattering performance reveals the nuances of resilient humanity.

Now playing in select theaters for its Oscar-qualifying run, the film will have a nationwide release starting January 16 courtesy of Sony Pictures Classics. The drama also stars Alec Baldwin, Kristen Stewart, Hunter Parish and Kate Bosworth.
