Away From Her

DVD Release: September 11, 2007

Away From Her is a beautifully moving love story that deals with memory and the circuitous, unnamable paths of a long marriage. Married for 50 years, Grant (Pinsent) and Fiona's (Christie) commitment to each other appears unwavering, and their everyday life is full of tenderness and humor. This serenity is broken only by Fiona's increasingly evident memory loss, creating a tension that is usually brushed off casually. As the lapses become more obvious and dramatic, it is no longer possible for either of them to ignore the fact that she is suffering from Alzheimer's disease.

Eventually, Fiona decides she's reached the point of no return and enters a retirement home in order to take the burden off Grant, though he can think of nothing worse than being away from her. The harmony in their lives is lost when dropping Fiona off, and Grant is forced to not visit her for 30 days. When Grant returns, he discovers Fiona seems to have no memory of him and has turned all of her affection to another resident in the home. A heartfelt story about enduring love and grace amidst life's complexities, it proves that though memory may fade, love remains.
