One: A
professor of linguistics and psychology at Columbia University, with extraordinary academic achievements, is slowly losing her memory. The career she is passionate about, her happy family, and even her once excellent self are gradually disappearing, blurring, and disappearing. The precious spiritual wealth that he worked hard for in the first half of his life was taken away by Alzheimer's little by little. Only the childhood memories of being on the beach with my sister will still flash back.
In the last scene, after listening to her daughter finish reading, she could only say with difficulty, "That was love".

A dancer who started dancing in elementary school. Besides dancing, she is also excellent in other subjects. She entered a prestigious university and graduated, but her passion for dancing made her give up her high-paying career to pursue her dream. He got a scholarship to study dance overseas, participated in numerous competitions, and completed works that attracted worldwide attention. After that, she returned to her hometown and taught dance to young people. As she got older, she was gradually unable to complete some movements, so she asked to stop and demonstrate, and explained it herself.
The body of each dancer is clumsy at the beginning, and after countless days and nights of carving, it becomes finally suitable for dancing. But soon the body will slowly return to its original clumsiness with the tiredness and aging.
She said, "Even so, I will keep jumping until I can't move."

Every time I go home and see my parents and elders, I feel that they are a little older and less original. Some are capable. Although no one in the family suffers from Alzheimer's disease, it can still be clearly felt that the elderly people's movements are becoming more and more inconvenient and their memories are beginning to be confused. The once dignified parents also became peaceful and kind. I love to communicate with them. I don't know when, I started to sit quietly at home and gradually lost contact with the outside world.
But the grandfather, who was basking in the sun on the balcony, kept telling me repeatedly how lucky he was in his life.

Four: In
one's life, nothing is brought and nothing is taken away. Still Alice, after reading it, I want to reduce some of my own delusions, because what I can have is always fleeting; I want to be nice to the people around me, because at least the moment we share now can be beautiful .

    I Moore propped up the entire movie on my own. If there is anything in this film, it is also because Moore used her restrained and completely unmarked performance and powerful life insights to present such a desperate and strong woman. The story is flat, not choosing a dramatic climax with more ups and downs, but only from a personal point of view, telling her love, her lover, her children, her career, her despair and reluctance.

    Resource leakage. After reading it, he said that Julian Moore is not the undecent opponent that this year said before, so he sits firmly on the top of the Oscar and is expected to be sealed off, but is absolutely forbidden to kill the gods and the Buddhas. PS Twilight Girl is not bad, and finally jumped out of the bad commercial film, returning to the feeling of a little girl in the literary film of the year.

Still Alice quotes

  • Dr. Alice Howland: I need something to read.

    Dr. John Howland: I thought you were reading Moby Dick.

    Dr. Alice Howland: Yeah, I was. But I got tired of reading the same page over and over again. I can't focus.

    Dr. John Howland: Well, that happens to me when I read Moby Dick too.

  • Dr. Alice Howland: When I was, um, a little girl, like, in second grade, my teacher told me butterflies don't live a long time. They live, like, a month. And I was so upset, and I went home, and I told my mother, and she said: "Yeah, but, you know, they have a nice life. They have a really beautiful life." So now it always makes me think about my mother's life, and my sister's life. And to a certain extent, you know, my own.
