Let’s make it clear: barring a full court public relations press in the next couple of weeks, “Still Alice” is not going to be a Best Picture Oscar contender. It’s a very respectable but not particularly remarkable movie that hits all the expected notes and nothing more. That said, the one element that most folks can agree on is the performance by Julianne Moore is one of her finest, and you can take a look today in a new trailer for the drama.
Co-starring Alec Baldwin, Kristen Stewart and Kate Bosworth, the film follows a professor who seems to have it all —a loving family, a great marriage, a fantastic career— but is forced to watch it all slip away when she gets diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease.
“Still Alice” is now playing in limited release.
