Synopsis: A husband is coping with the institutionalization of his wife because of Alzheimer's disease.

Sarah Polley's directoral debut is absolutely wonderful. She had a hand in writing the story as well.

We watch Grant (Gorden Pinsent) and Fiona (Julie Christie) deal with the growing onset of Alzheimer's. The process is slow but inevitable and both deal with their own issues surrounding the future.

The story is touching, saddening, enlightening and simply beautiful. Polley does a masterful job and we are very pleased to have seen this. Very highly recommended.
