Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that Still Alice tracks the frighteningly fast progression of early-onset Alzheimer's disease in Alice (an excellent Julianne Moore), a Columbia University professor. This deeply affecting film doesn't shy away from its depiction of a tragic and unrelenting condition; Alice is seen unraveling, a prospect that could be very upsetting for younger/more sensitive viewers. She has mood swings, is increasingly unable to take care of herself, becomes incontinent, and has difficulty communicating. There's also some swearing (including very sparing use of "s--t" and "f--k"), social drinking (wine at dinner, etc.), a reference to oral sex, and a despondent moment of utter despair.

Sexual Content

A husband and wife kiss each other and make vague allusions to intimate relations. One mention of oral sex. Brief glimpse of the side of a woman's butt.


Plenty of sadness, but no violence.


Some swearing, including "s--t," one "f--k," "hell," "goddammit," and "a--hole."

Social Behavior

You may lose your mental faculties when suffering from Alzheimer's disease, but that doesn't have to mean failure or complete loss of identity.


Pinkberry is mentioned, and some scenes are set in the shop. Also Apple and Insignia logos/products.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Social drinking. One scene shows a woman collecting a powerful narcotic and nearly drinking all of it.
