Review: The film trailer only barely makes sense as a look at Alzheimer’s, but this poster design definitely gives that impression even if the subject matter does not. It’s an interesting visual symbolism for both Alzheimer’s and the synopsis-fueled concept of being stuck in alternative lives.

Trailer Rating: B

Review: The trailer has a way of making this film look horrendously formulaic, predictable, and unexceptional even if the synopsis makes it sound otherwise.

Oscar Prospects:

The early release isn’t likely to benefit the film, but it has all the earmarks of a potential Oscar contender, especially for its stars.
