HRAFF presents a special preview screening of Still Alice for Sydney Film Fundraiser.
Join the Human Rights Arts & Film Festival for its first Sydney film fundraiser – a special event preview screening of Still Alice at Dendy Cinema, Newtown, starring Julianne Moore, Kristen Stewart and Alec Baldwin.
“This is an effortlessly excellent film…” - Catherine Shoard, The Guardian
Based on the best-selling novel, Still Alice brings to light the confronting, compelling and challenging world of early-onset dementia. Julianne Moore gives what many are calling the performance of her career as Alice, a 50-year-old Professor at Columbia; a gifted researcher and lecturer; a wife and mother of three grown children. On a day like any other she sets out for a run, taking the route she always runs but soon realises she has no idea how to find her way home. She is lost – a feeling that will only grow for her and those around her – as medical testing confirms she has Alzheimer’s Disease.
Rave reviews and a wave of award recognition including a Golden Globe nomination position Julianne Moore’s performance as the front-runner for the Best Actress Oscar – upon initial reception, critics are widely considering it her career highlight.
It is both an entirely absorbing and heart-breaking experience that will have you reflect on the strength of the love and support surrounding you.
