Having been a caregiver for over 6 years I found very little depth in this movie.I found her too mentally well to go into the nursing home and he very much in his own ego needs. Again, there is that notion that we find ourselves through another person. So, there's that sexual part. I lead an Alzheimer's group with men and women and our dialogues were raw and tearful. We were too worn out to

I absolutely loved this film - tho it was hard to find a theatre that was playing it...Julie Christie was BRILLIANT and is still so gorgeous.....As a daughter of an Alzheimer parent, I found the story very moving...Tho I thought Fiona had more verbal skills than most patients....Thank you for a terrific film!!

The pain of watching a spouse succumb to Alzheimer's is given a particularly deep and sensitive treatment in Away From Her. Full Review

I can't remember the last time the movies yielded up a love story so painful, so tender and so true. Full Review

Rarely has love at any age been depicted so honestly on screen. For such a fully realized portrait to be created by a 28-year-old first-time director is even more remarkable. Full Review
Carina Chocano
Los Angeles Times
Poignant, wise and unafraid -- just the sort of film for a young person, or any person, for that matter, to make. Full Review
Claudia Puig
USA Today
Does the finest job of any film in painting a believable portrait of aging, capturing the sadness, confusion, anxiety and defiance of the early stages of dementia. Full Review
