Check Out Still Alice in Theatres



Julianne Moore portrays a woman living with Younger-Onset Alzheimer’s Disease in the newly released film Still Alice (based on a best-selling novel written by Lisa Genova). The movie provides a frank and open portrayal of the devastating effects of the disease. Moore’s character, Alice, represents a terrifying reality that more than 5 million Americans can relate to. Women in particular are largely impacted by this disease as they sit at epicenter of the Alzheimer’s crisis. In fact, women are more likely to develop the disease and are more likely to be a caregiver for someone living with memory loss during their lifetime.

Still Alice is released in theatres January 16th. Check out the trailer below or learn more about the women behind Still Alice by clicking here.
