Monday, September 17: Still Alice
Julianne Moore won the Academy Award for Best Actress for her portrayal of title character Dr. Alice Howland, a renowned linguistics professor at Columbia University. When words begin to escape her and she starts becoming lost on her daily jogs, Alice must come face-to-face with a devastating diagnosis: early-onset Alzheimer’s disease. As the once-vibrant woman struggles to hang on to her sense of self for as long as possible, Alice’s three grown children must watch helplessly as their mother disappears more and more with each passing day.
A representative from the Alzheimer’s Association will be the guest speaker and discussion leader.
The Silver Screen Series is presented by the Creve Coeur Arts Committee along with Maturity and Its Muse. For more information, contact Melissa Orscheln, Public Information Officer and Management Analyst, at firstname.lastname@example.org or (314) 442-2081.
