TRAILER: Julianne Moore Oscar Worthy in ‘Still Alice’

by Jordan McGuire on December 10, 2014

Julianne Moore is one of those actresses who seems to never pick a bad movie. Whether it’s because she is leading the way, the script, the director or all of the above, I tend to gravitate towards her projects.

Julianne Moore stars as Maude in my favorite movie of all time, The Big Lebowski, a parody of the modern feminist artist. She also starred in the cult classic Boogie Nights, playing Amber Waves, surrogate mother to Mark Wahlberg’s character Dirk Diggler.

In her new film Still Alice, we will see a very different side of Moore. She is coupled with actor Alec Baldwin and plays mother to Kristen Stewart. In the Still Alice trailer, we see that she is struggling with the early stages of Alzheimer’s disease, although not yet suffering from the full blown physical effects of the illness.

This film is written and directed by Richard Glatzer and Wash Westmoreland. Opens in select cities starting January 16, 2015. Read more at the film’s official website
