Away from Her
Away from Her: 8 out of 10.
Toronto's Sarah Polley's directorial debut is a winner. "Away from Her" is a poignant tale about Alzheimer’s disease, and Polley's subtle touch and Gordon Pinsent and Julie Christie's amazing performances gives it class.
It's also a movie that isn't ashamed to take place in Ontario. It references Paris, Ontario and Brantford, focuses upon a Maple Leafs playoff game and Brant County. It's a Canadian film that succeeds on a global scale, like "The Sweet Hereafter" and "The Barbarian Invasions".
