{Away From Her}


Here's a somber film I'm ithcing to see...

Away From Her is directed by Sarah Polley (who starred in Go, My Life Without Me, Dawn of the Dead), based on the short story, "The Bear Came Over the Mountain", by Alice Munro.

The story revolves around Fiona and Grant, an Ontario couple who have been married for over 40 years and are forced to face the fact that Fiona's "forgetfulness" is actually Alzheimer's Disease. After being put into a nursing home and after a "no-vistors" policy for the first 30 days of a patient's stay, Fiona has seemingly forgotten Grant, and has transferred her affections to another man. This looks like it could be a real tearjerker. Away From Her is currently playing in select theaters.
