Minute Movie Review – Away from Her


When Fiona’s Alzheimer’s gets too bad to handle at home, she is brought into a home. Her husband can visit her whenever he wants, but not for the first thirty days. But when he does, she can’t really remember who he is. A love story that for once doesn’t focus on young people and that is as unconventional as possible, this little film seems to be taken directly from life. Carried by the lead actors, the Oscar nominated Julie Christie and the inexplicably overlooked Gordon Pinsent, the movie is both touching and real.

Random Observations:

Away from Her at imdb.com

Gordon Pinsent may not be a household name like Julie Christie. But the way he displayed the emotions of the forgotten husband is a much greater accomplishment than Christie’s “forgetting”.
