Away From Her  (DVD)
Moving adaptation of a short story by Alice Munro, starring Julie Christie as Fiona, who has been married to Grant for almost 50 years.
A double-Oscar-nominated, beautifully subtle exploration of a devastating disease; Julie Christie turns in a Golden Globe winning performance in this honest, life-affirming story of relationships, love and devotion.
Married for fifty years, Grant and Fiona’s life together is full of tenderness and humour. Now, however, Fiona is starting to suffer from memory lapses and the couple are forced to accept that she has Alzheimer’s disease.
Seeking specialist care, Grant makes the heart-breaking decision to move Fiona into a nursing home, only to find that his beloved wife has now forgotten him completely… and fallen for another man, who is also a patient at the facility.
