If you are not familiar with the movie ….

“Still Alice,” is a movie that gives us a rare window into the experience of living with Alzheimer’s disease—a glimpse of the inside looking out.

Dr. Alice Howland (Julianne Moore), a renowned linguistics professor, starts to forget words. When she receives a diagnosis of younger-onset Alzheimer’s disease, Alice and her family find their bonds thoroughly tested. Her struggle to stay connected to who she once was is frightening, heartbreaking and inspiring.

The screening is sponsored in part by the CT Chapter of the Alzheimer’s Association and representatives will be there for a discussion and to answer questions.
