When beginning to research this, I was surprised how many movies about this subject there are. Still Alice has been all over the media, and it is a brilliant film, but we should not forget that there are many more. I think it’s great that there are movies like this out there as they raise awareness and give people easy access to the topic.
This is definitely not a top list, but five suggestions if you have been wondering what to watch tonight. (And are in the mood for a rather thoughtful and sad movie)
The Savages (2007)
The siblings Jon and Wendy (played by Philip Seymour Hoffman and Laura Linney) do not get along. They are nevertheless forced to leave that behind when their father is diagnosed with dementia. He has never cared for them but they are the only ones left to care for him.
