Toronto 2014: 'Still Alice' Review

Julianne Moore's finest performance, as I've mentioned before, is in Safe. But her portrayal of Alice Howland in the tearjerking drama Still Alice is absolutely stunning as well. She plays a woman with early-onset Alzheimer's, and the film watches what happens to her and her family after the diagnosis. Folks, this movie just about killed me: This is how you do an intelligent melodrama. My review is up at Screen International.
