Still Alice is a marvelous movie about health, particularly mental health, which we’re not normally conscious of until it goes away. I agree with Alice about the Alzheimer’s Disease being worse than cancer because in this neurologically degenerative disease, you’ll lose your own identity. What could be worse than that when I don’t remember myself!
I automatically made a comparison between Alice, who was NOT Still Alice, in my opinion, and Stephen Hawking, the popular physicist who theorized about many concepts while he was paralyzed. He could not even move his neck, but he was Still Hawking!
Alice was so unfortunate because she was leading a healthy lifestyle. She was sleeping around 7 hours per day, did physical exercise, had a supportive family, and was highly educated. But all of a sudden, she was diagnosed with this disease that was hereditary.
