Dir. Sarah Polley

Aroview: Julie Christie stars in this carefully observed drama about a woman with Alzheimer's, her husband, and the tragedy of the disease's 'long goodbye', adapted from the Alice Munro story 'The Bear Came Over The Mountain'.

The directorial debut by actress Sarah Polley, this is as considered and mature as her performances in such films as THE SWEET HEREAFTER and MY LIFE WITHOUT ME.
