The movie "Still Alice" is the story of Dr. Alice Howland, a renowned linguistics professor at Columbia University, and her struggles to hang on to her sense of self as long as possible after a diagnosis of early-onset Alzheimer's disease. Her three grown children must watch helplessly as their mother disappears with each passing day.
