Away from Her 

Sarah Polley

Away from Her
Directed by: Sarah Polley
Sarah Polley’s lovely directorial debut is a movie made up of quiet moments---like Grant’s (Gordon Pinsent) embarrassed zipping of his fly at the Alzheimer’s hospital, after he makes love with ailing wife Fiona (Julie Christie) for the last time. The film takes a warts-and-all approach to the couple’s marriage, portraying the dull ache Grant feels at being forgotten without sentimentalizing the memories being lost.
