    It does look very good. I may or may not go to see it. I'm undecided also.

    I have seen several movies about dementia. Iris with Judy Dench is the best, in my mind. The one I cordially disliked was The Notebook. The way Gena Rowlands' character switched back and forth from complete lucidity to total confusion just did not ring true. Gena Rowlands is a fine actress, but that script was a turgid, steaming mess.

    I also liked Iris @Canadian Joanne. To be honest it's the only one I've watched. I normally avoid films about dementia but having liked Iris Murdoch and liking Judi Dench I decided to get the DVD. I'm glad I did.

    I doubt if I'll go to see this new one.

    I made myself see Iris, I had neighbours who had dementia, it was so beautifully filmed. Very sensitive to the feeling of a husband having to deal with a once important author. A brilliant brain. I think student medics and social workers should see it.
