Away From Her
Monday, 23 February 2009

Sarah Polley. Canada. 2007. 109 mins. Cert 12A.

This powerful and affecting film was nominated for 2 Oscars. Tremendous performances by Julie Christie and Gordon Pinset show a couple facing up to the effects of living with Alzheimer's. Fiona (Christie) appears to forget her husband of 50 years and to his dismay begins a platonic love affair with a male patient at her nursing home.

STOP PRESS: Julie Christie will attend the film and after it answer questions from the audience. See News page.
