Pillow Cinema: Still Alice
Moving cinema about life, death and love
The Pillow Cinema have made it their mission to turn your movie nights into unforgettable experiences. After a glorious summer of screening s they now take their magic to the beautiful Sutton House, a stunning Tudor home run by The National Trust in the heart of Hackney. Filled with oak-panelled rooms and charming original features, it’s the perfect setting for cosying up with a movie and a loved one this winter. If Julianne Moore's recent Oscar win peaked your interest, then now's a good time to check out Still Alice. Alice Howland, happily married with three grown children, is a renowned linguistics professor who starts to forget words. When she receives a diagnosis of Early-Onset Alzheimer's Disease, Alice and her family find their bonds thoroughly tested. "It's extremely moving in the gentlest, most linear way, and the other performances are sterling, too." – The Telegraph "Julianne Moore guides us through the tragic arc of how it must feel to disappear before one's own eyes, accomplishing one of her most powerful performances by underplaying the scenario." – Variety Certificate: 12A. Runtime: 1 hour 41 minutes. Doors to Sutton House open half an hour before the event. The film will start at the advertised time, and no trailers will be shown in advance. The fatboy bean bags are huge, and seat one person spaciously or two people snuggled up. If lounging's not really your thing, you can also grab a more traditional seat. Either way, there'll be blankets and cushions available for all.
Julianne Moore's stunning turn in the deeply emotional drama Still Alice is head and shoulders above anything else achieved this year."
