Review: An uninspiring color and an uninspiring image. It speaks to the relationship between the artist’s wife and the artist, but that’s not enough to be impactful.

Trailer Rating: C+

Review: We’ve seen this kind of film numerous times and the more film’s about Alzheimer’s that come out, the less special each one feels. Sure Bruce Dern and Lena Olin look like they do good work, but the film has a rather dull feel to it.

Oscar Prospects:

Bruce Dern and Leno Olin are given material that might be Oscar worthy, but the trailer doesn’t really give us an indication that the film is more than passable.
