Blatant rip off of the much better The Notebook. A few good moments, and Pinsent is as great as ever. Otherwise, the film has nothing going for it.

Excellent source material, the short story "The Bear Came Over the Mountain" by Alice Munro, helped keep this one from becoming overly sentimental or trite. A nice touch with the directing and a fine cast all around make it well worh watching, despite the unhappy topic.

The best part about this movie was its quaintness. It was a very charmingly quaint movie.

An extremely emotional film, that examines a couple who faces a huge test when one develops Alzheimer's to a point where she must enter a retirement home. Julie Christie is exceptional as her portrayal of the disease is shocking - her character literally transforms before your eyes. Truly a great performance, it's easy to see why she won so many awards. The supporting cast is strong as well. Not a happy film, it's one to watch for the performance.

Away from Her

A whole new level of sadness pervades me whenever I watch movies about people who have Alzheimer's disease. "The Notebook" was the epitome of that kind of film but this one definitely takes the cake. I love how this movie did not end up as cheesy, which "The Notebook" kind of did. The characters remained composed from beginning to end. I imagined myself in the male protagonist's shoes and I can't image keeping it together if someone I love volunteers to check herself in a home, let alone finding her being intimate with another man, not remembering that she is married to me. I found it admirable that the protagonist found the energy to remain loyal regardless of all the pain he had endured. I love the tone of the movie and everything that came with it. Hopefully, I won't have to make the c...
