Film Preview: Away from Her (2007)

Trailers (Due to age, may no longer be available)

Posters (Due to age, may no longer be available)

Poster Rating: B-

Review: The poster is simple and suggestive but there isn’t enough to it to make it more than mildly interesting.

Trailer Rating: A-

Review: This is one of the first American-made trailers that makes me want to see it this year. The preview shows the film to tackle an infrequently touched story about romance and redemption among the elderly.

Oscar Prospects:

This could be a spoiler for Best Picture, but I expect both Julie Christie and Olympia Dukakis to be discussed frequently for nominations unless critics turn away from the feature.

Release Date:

May 4, 2007


An intimate portrait of a man losing his wife to Alzheimer’s Disease. The film features fantastic performances by Julie Christie, Gordon Pinsent and Olympia Dukakis.
