Free Screening Still Alice
Friday, Jan 22 @ 6:30pm
Hood River Library
Alice Howland, happily married with three grown children, is a renowned linguistics professor
who starts to forget words. When she receives a diagnosis of Early-Onset Alzheimer’s Disease,
Alice and her family find their bonds thoroughly tested. Her struggle to stay connected to who
she once was is frightening, heartbreaking, and inspiring.
“With some five million Americans (and 36 million worldwide) living with Alzheimer’s disease,
the warm, compassionate but bitingly honest Still Alice will touch home for many people. The
toll the disease takes on the life of a brilliant linguistics professor is superbly detailed by Julianne
Moore in a career-high performance, driving straight to the terror of the disease and its power to
wipe out personal certainties and identity.” –Deborah Young, Hollywood Reporter
