After 45 years of marriage, ageing couple Fiona and Grant are struck with a devastating blow, the looming clouds of Alzheimer's disease. In a heart-breaking decision, Fiona is moved into a residential facility. But there's one more shock on the horizon as Fiona starts to transfer her affections to another man, Aubrey, who also is a patient at the nursing home. A double-Oscar-nominated, beautifully subtle exploration of a devastating disease; Julie Christie (Doctor Zhivago, Darling) turns in a Golden Globe winning performance in this honest, life-affirming story of relationships, love and devotion.
