Co-directed by Richard Glatzer and Wash Westmoreland (“The Last Of Robin Hood”), the drama stars Julianne Moore, Kristen Stewart, Alec Baldwin, Kate Bosworth and Hunter Parrish, and tells the story of a professor who receives a life-changing diagnosis that affects everyone around her. Here’s the official synopsis:
Renowned linguistics professor Dr. Alice Howland (the always-extraordinary Julianne Moore, also at the Festival in Maps to the Stars) knows the truth of Bishop’s poetic insight as well as anyone. Diagnosed with early-onset Alzheimer’s, Alice learns the art of losing every day.
At first, Alzheimer’s means losing her way around the streets of Manhattan, but soon — far too soon for her husband and three grown children — it’s much more. But even as it puts her marriage to the test, Alice’s new condition does provide the opportunity to reconnect with her youngest daughter, Lydia (Kristen Stewart), with whom she’s never seen eye-to-eye. The fact that Alice is a lifelong student of language and communication proves a powerful resource in her fight against mental decline, but it also means that she has a uniquely troubling understanding of what’s to come.
