Kristen Stewart came on as her daughter. And to make things even more interesting, Mr. Glatzer co-directed while increasingly limited in his actions by ALS. The group gathered and discussed the film, the process, and choices made with David Poland.

Indie Wire Interview

Posted By Admin On 10.12.2014 » Add Comment (0)



Kristen has a come a long way since the “Twilight” franchise that launched her fame into the stratosphere. The hit series only wrapped two years ago, and already Stewart has distanced herself from the films that made her name by appearing in a number of smaller projects this year that prove her worth as an actress.

Did “Still Alice” strike a chord for you personally? Is there anyone you know who suffered through something similar?

I very fortunately have never experienced that personally. I’ve never had a loved one who has had to traverse the very scary path that one must who is diagnosed with Alzheimer’s. I did have one very formative experience as a young kid with an older lady, a mother of a family friend, who was clearly in a severe state of dementia. In retrospect, I have no idea if it was Alzheimer’s or not, but she was clearly gone. She had clearly lost parts of herself, and what remained was very desperate to connect. I was 12 and I walked into this room and started hanging with this lady, and I soon came to realize there was this lapse, yet there was this really real, almost desperate awareness over the fact she was treasuring these moments because they were about to leave her. Then we had dinner, and everyone at the table ignored her and was treating her as if she didn’t exist, but I had just met her and I had seen her personality, her soul, her presence, her essence – it was all so clear to me. And it was all being taken for granted so much at this table. I remembered this for a long time. I told this story long before I read the script for “Still Alice.” I just couldn’t forget it.

When I read this script and met with the directors, I felt like I had to prove myself that I was worthy to play such a special person, because Lydia is endowed with something that not everyone is in that she can deal, she can focus on the positive and the light and not make things so black-and-white; she can take things for what they are and enjoy them and appreciate them without having to call them a name. She lives in the ambiguity and can appreciate it, and I feel very similar. And it was a perfectly clear test considering Wash and Rich are dealing with something entirely similar and just as grotesquely scary and devastating. With someone with ALS, they just get sort of brushed over and ignored all the time. It’s hard to acknowledge. It’s easier not too. And Rich is the smartest person in the room, so when I met with them and we found ourselves mutually wanting to work together, we knew we had to do it.

I also knew I could do it with Julie [Julianne] because I’ve known her for a couple years. I knew I could be her kid. I just knew that everything was going to be honest and right. We weren’t making anything up, so it would be heavy.

Everyone always asks, “How did this movie change you? What did it give you?” And it gives you in the most basic sense a fundamental perspective. You want to go home and call your mom, or you want to stop being so petty. It gives you this massive jug of perspective.

My biggest fear in life is death, and right up there is losing my memory. I know you don’t play Alice, but was the process of making this film extremely difficult? Or was it a pleasure to make given who you got to work with?

Exclusive “Still Alice” Trailer

Posted By Admin On 09.12.2014 » Add Comment (0)



Julianne Moore tops the list of this year’s best actress Oscar contenders for her work in the drama Still Alice, in which she plays a woman facing a shocking diagnosis of early onset Alzheimer’s disease. You can watch the trailer, a Yahoo Movies exclusive, above.

The actress has earned four previous nominations, beginning with her playing porn star Amber Waves in Paul Thomas Anderson’s 1997 film Boogie Nights. For Moore, who recently turned 54, that prior recognition doesn’t make the buzz building around her Alice performance any less sweet. “I feel lucky,” a beaming Moore told Yahoo Movies over the weekend. In fact, Moore was unsure if the movie — which was shot last March — would even be released this year. “I was just in the middle of my research [for the movie] this time last year, so I feel astonished that it happened and feel grateful that people are talking about us,” she said.

As seen in the trailer, Moore plays Dr. Alice Howland, a renowned linguist and happily married mother of three. Her life starts to slip away as her mind begins to deteriorate, with devastating effects on closest relationships. Moore praised Alice co-directors Richard Glatzer and Wash Westmoreland for how they chose to present her character’s condition. “It was so unusual for me to see a disease depicted completely subjectively, from the patient’s point of view,” said Moore. “This is really her story from the inside.” And, of course, she relied on her own research: “I didn’t want to depict anything onscreen that I hadn’t actually seen. Everything that you see — all of the actions, all of the reactions, all of the things that are physicalized — were all things that I had observed.”

Beyond the fact that the movie came out so quickly, Moore says she also feels lucky that the studio behind the Hunger Games: Mockingjay series, Lionsgate, allowed her to spend time away from the big-budget production to shoot the indie film. “I was booked on that movie [Hunger Games] for the entire year and this came up,” she said, explaining that Hunger Games producers allowed room in the schedule for her to shoot Still Alice. “I have a lot of gratitude to them.”

Still Alice, also with Alec Baldwin, Kristen Stewart, Kate Bosworth, and Hunter Parrish, is in select theaters now and opens wide on Jan. 16.
