Away from Her is a subtle, poignant, and superbly acted drama about a long marriage that is tested externally by Alzheimer's disease and internally by the cords of attachment. Julie Christie (in an Oscar-nominated role) plays the wife, and Gordon Pinsent plays the husband desperate to ensure her comfort in the new setting while burdened with guilt over past behavior. Olympia Dukakis co-stars in this film inspired by an Alice Munro story.
Release date: 27 April 2007
