Based on Lisa Genova’s 2007 bestselling novel of the same name.

“Golden Globe win and best-actress Oscar nomination for its star- Still Alice is a searing portrait of one of the least understood, most frightening plagues of this century. When 50-year-old Alice Howland (Julianne Moore) learns that she has an early-onset form of the disease, she tells her husband: “I wish I had Cancer.” The condition makes itself felt in ways that are so subtle that anyone over 40 has probably wondered, fleetingly, whether its tangled fingers are worming into their brain. Alice blanks on a few words, mistakes a conversation as being about her late sister, and – most tellingly – gets lost while out for a run. Adding irony to injury, Alice is a professor of linguistics, accustomed to lecturing about the acquisition of language, not experiencing its dissociation. But her educated background means she knows the right doctors to visit and the right questions to ask. Alec Baldwin as her husband is supportive. But ultimately, the diagnosis is something they can only react to, not reverse.” National Post

For his remarkable performance, Timothy Spall won the Best Actor prize at Cannes 2014. Mr. Turner explores the last quarter century of the great if eccentric British painter J.M.W. Turner (1775-1851) Profoundly affected by the death of his father, loved by a housekeeper he takes for granted and occasionally exploits sexually, he forms a close relationship with a seaside landlady with whom he eventually lives incognito in Chelsea, where he dies. Throughout, he travels, paints, stays with the country aristocracy, visits brothels, is a popular if anarchic member of the Royal Academy of Arts, has himself strapped to the mast of a ship so that he can paint a snowstorm, and is both celebrated and reviled by the public and by royalty.
