In Still Alice - Lisa Genova’s New York Times bestselling novel - an accomplished professor diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease learns that her worth is comprised of more than her ability to remember.
The novel has now become a major motion picture from Sony Pictures Classics starring Oscar-winner Julianne Moore, Alec Baldwin, Kate Bosworth, and Kristen Stewart.
Alice Howland (played by Julieanne Moore) is proud of the life she worked so hard to build. At fifty years old, she’s a cognitive psychology professor at Harvard and a world-renowned expert in linguistics with a successful husband and three grown children.
When she becomes increasingly disoriented and forgetful, a diagnosis of Alzheimer's changes her life - and her relationship with her family and the world.
According to the publisher, Still Alice is 'a moving and vivid depiction of life with early-onset Alzheimer’s disease that is as compelling as A Beautiful Mind and as unforgettable as Ordinary People.'
Neither HammondCare Media or The Dementia Centre are specifically endorsing the novel or its dementia-related content but are making it available to the many people who visit our sites for dementia information, on the basis of strong public interest in the book and movie as well as the potential for beneficial raising of awareness.
