        This is the first movie written and directed by Canadian actress Sarah Polley. The story is of love, loss and memory. Julie Christie and Gordon Pinsent play the devoted couple Fiona and Grant whose 50-year marriage appears unshakeable. However, events take a heartbreaking turn when Fiona develops Alzheimer's disease and decides to move into a care home, forcing Grant to watch helplessly as he gradually loses the woman he adores. Based on a short story by Alice Munro, it's a quiet and sensitively handled drama that allows the tragic narrative to speak for itself without sickly sentiment or showy direction. Probaly Christie's best role since Heat & Dust... UK Dvd Gallery added.

          Based on Alice Munro's short story, The Bear Came Over The Mountain, AWAY FROM HER is a beautifully moving love story ~ BACK COVER


        2007, 110 MINS, COLOUR

      • Married for 50 years, Grant (Gordon Pinsent) and Fiona's (Julie Christie) life together is full of tenderness and humour, their serenity broken only by Fiona's occasional, restrained references to the past, complicated further by her increasingly evident memory loss. As the lapses become more obvious and dramatic, it is no longer possible for either of them to ignore the fact that Fiona is suffering from Alzheimer's disease.

        Moving Fiona into a nursing home specializing in the disease, Grant is not allowed to visit for the first month so she can "adjust". When he sees her again, Fiona has forgotten him and turned her affection to Aubrey (Michael Murphy), another resident in the home. Heartbroken, GrantAubrey. When Aubrey's wife (Olympia Dukakis) takes Aubrey home, Fiona becomes deeply depressed, and Grant embarks on the greatest act of self sacrifice of his life.
