CULVER CITY, Calif.

When linguistics professor Dr. Alice Howland (Moore) is diagnosed with early-onset Alzheimer’s disease, she struggles to stay connected to the world around her and who she once was. STILL ALICE depicts the progression of the disease, its familial impact, and the aching resilience brought forth. Moore’s performance was the most awarded of the season, earning her the Best Actress Oscar®, as well as Best Actress awards from the Golden Globes, Screen Actors Guild, BAFTA, and the Broadcast Film Critics Association, among others.

The first, “Directing Alice,” is a look at Richard Glatzer & Wash Westmoreland’s unique journey to create STILL ALICE. This piece includes inspiring footage of the adapted directorial techniques used by Glatzer and Westmoreland, as Glatzer’s battle with ALS progressed while filming. The second featurette, “Finding Alice,” explores the research and time dedicated by the filmmakers and cast to create an accurate portrayal of the disease. This featurette also introduces Sandy Oltz, a woman living with early-onset Alzheimer’s, who served as a consultant and advisor to Julianne Moore. In the third featurette, composer Ilan Eshkeri discusses how Alzheimer’s has affected his life, why he was drawn to this project and the role music plays in the film.
