Back when Amazon asked its Prime members to vote on new series, I gave Good Girls Revolt high marks. Since then it’s made it to the series stage. The first trailer just released. Continue Reading: Watch This: Trailer for Good Girls Revolt
Still Alice stars Julianne Moore as Dr. Alice Howland, a renowned linguistics professor who starts to forget words because of early onset Alzheimer’s disease. The film is based on Lisa Genova’s 2007 bestselling novel of the same name.
Still Alice will have a limited release in December, which means Julianne Moore will be in the running for an Oscar nomination for the film for 2014. The major release for the film will come in January 2015. There’s some talk that Moore might be nominated for an Oscar for Maps to the Stars for 2014. Two Oscar worthy performances this year! Those make for pretty good odds for Moore to win a long-deserved but illusive Oscar for 2014. She’s been nominated 4 times, but has no wins yet. I remember watching her back in 1999 in Cookie’s Fortune, thinking what an amazing performer she was. I think same thing every time I watch her in anything. She’s an enormous talent.
In Still Alice, the Howland family around Alice include her husband John (Alec Baldwin) and her 3 grown children: Lydia (Kristen Stewart), Anna (Kate Bosworth) and Tom (Hunter Parrish).
From mostly glowing reviews for Still Alice from TIFF, the film appears to be quiet and subdued, but honest and touching.
There isn’t an official trailer yet, but this brief clip was released. It shows something of the relationship between Alice and daughter Lydia.
I’ll be on the lookout for trailers and other information about this film as year’s end draws closer.
