Review: This movie may cause distress to some viewers as it focuses on one person's suffering with Dementia and the impact it has on other people. I thought Anthony Hopkins' portrayal of the suffering character was brilliant, although there is debate regarding his winning the Academy Award for Best Actor. The movie sheds some light on what people may be going through when suffering with mental health (Dementia in this case) and how those taking care of them can be affected or even frustrated. Personally, as I am related to someone suffering through this, it is nice to see some attention being brought forward for more awareness and hopefully a better understanding of carers going through something similar
