STILL Alice (12A), a film raising the profile of early onset Alzheimer’s Disease, will show at the Curzon on Friday.

The film helped Julianne Moore to her first Oscar for Best Actress, with her performance being described as ‘rich in sympathy, grace and insight.’

Anyone with experience of caring for someone with Alzheimer’s will recognise the random lapses in memory and the increasing confusion that comes with the disease, with the impact on family life brilliantly captured in Moore’s portrayal of Dr Alice Howland, a mother-of-three.

However, in spite of the difficulties explored by the film it always manages to stay positive about its main character who, despite her deterioration, is still Alice.

Also receiving its first play on Friday is Dreamworks’ Home (U), starring Jim Parsons, Rihanna and Jennifer Lopez.

When Oh, a loveable misfit from another planet, lands on Earth and finds himself on the run from his own people, he forms an unlikely friendship with an adventurous girl called Tip who is on a quest of her own.

Kingsman: The Secret Service (15) and The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel (PG) will continue to be shown until Friday.
