Consensus: Elevated by a gripping performance from Julianne Moore, Still Alice is a heartfelt drama that honors its delicate themes with bravery and sensitivity.

Moira MacDonald
Seattle Times

While it's no surprise that Moore is so good, "Still Alice" has an unexpected trick up its sleeve: the sweetly gentle performance of Kristen Stewart, as Alice's actress daughter Lydia.

Lisa Kennedy
Denver Post

Sorrow-laden and moving, Still Alice isn't gratuitously grim nor is it easily sentimental. There's humor here -- vaguely gallows-like, perhaps but also earned.

Matt Wolf
The Arts Desk

The film is lifted by one of the few actresses out there who can make even the blankest of despair feel entirely fresh.

Rafer Guzman

A modest drama, but Moore's heart-wrenching and Oscar-nominated performance makes this a must-see.

Steven Rea
Philadelphia Inquirer

The great strength of the film is that it never resorts to cheap sentimentality. The facts themselves are hard enough, crushing enough.

If only the film itself were worthy of Moore's work.

Rene Rodriguez
Miami Herald

The movie is harrowing, as any story about Alzheimer's should be, but Moore gives it an extra layer of gravity and heartbreaking inevitability.

Liam Lacey
Globe and Mail

Still Alice is accurate and compassionate, and anyone who has known someone with Alzheimer's will appreciate the film's sincere intentions.

SF Weekly

Moore's performance as a well-to-do woman stricken with Alzheimer's before her time redeems Richard Glatzer and Wash Westmoreland's cringe-drama Still Alice.
