Away from Her

synopsis


Together for fifty years, the union between Grant (Gordon Pinsent) and Fiona (Julie Christie) appears unwavering, and their everyday life is full of tenderness and humour. This facade of serenity is broken only by the occasional reference to more troubled times in their past – lapses that are a result of Fiona's increasing struggle with Alzheimer's disease. Confined to a retirement home, Grant watches helplessly as Fiona becomes a stranger, her memory rapidly deteriorating. Fearful for his wife's worsening condition, Grant embarks on his greatest act of self-sacrifice as a means to attain Fiona's final happiness. Based on the celebrated short story The Bear Came Over The Mountain' by Alice Munro, Away From Her is the touching, poignant and critically-acclaimed feature film debut from writer-director Sarah Polley.

Such a stunning film - a really beautiful romance quite unlike any I've seen before. It addresses what can only be called true love, but without being overly romanticised or soppy.
