“Now a film starring Julianne Moore, the original novel is just as intelligent and moving. When a brilliant linguistics professor is diagnosed with early onset Alzyeimer’s she, and her family, must adjust to their new reality.” Bob
Alice Howland is proud of the life she worked so hard to build. At fifty, she’s a cognitive psychology professor at Harvard and a renowned expert in linguistics, with a successful husband and three grown children.
When she begins to grow forgetful and disoriented, she dismisses it for as long as she can until a tragic diagnosis changes her life – and her relationship with her family and the world around her – for ever. Unable to care for herself, Alice struggles to find meaning and purpose as her concept of self gradually slips away. But Alice is a remarkable woman, and her family learn more about her and each other in their quest to hold on to the Alice they know.
Her memory hanging by a frayed thread, she is living in the moment, living for each day. But she is still Alice.
