Still Alice on Blu-ray and DVD
At age fifty, Alice Howland (Julianne Moore) has it all: a Columbia University linguistics professorship, a devoted husband, and three loving children. Her life is a whirlwind of work and family, and she thrives on it. But, while lecturing at UCLA, something unexpected happens: mid-sentence, she struggles to find a word.
Though a seemingly innocuous relapse, the incident leads to a diagnosis of early onset Alzheimer's disease, a stunning realisation that sees the bonds between Alice and her family thoroughly tested.
Based on Lisa Genova’s 2009 novel of the same name, Still Alice is a frightening, heartbreaking, but ultimately inspiring drama featuring an astonishing Oscar and BAFTA-winning performance from Julianne Moore. OUT ON DVD & BLU RAY JULY 6TH.
