Movie Summary
Filmmaker Atom Egoyan - a longtime onscreen collaborator with the gifted young thesp Sarah Polley (The Sweet Hereafter) - executive-produced Polleys directorial debut, Away from Her, starring Julie Christie, Olympia Dukakis, Michael Murphy and Wendy Crewson. Adapted by Polley from a short story by Alice Munro, this small-scaled two-character drama concerns Grant (Gordon Pinsent) and Fiona (Christie), a long-married couple, well into their golden years, who are much in love and connected to one another on every level. Soulmates in the purest sense of the word, the two feel a sense of ease and tranquility in their rural home. But when Fionas memory begins to slip away and she insists on being taken to a rest home, the decision stirs up torrents of guilt and regret in Grants heart. The rules of the center only complicate matters, as they forbid visitation and communication with Fiona for an interminable period of time. He determines to support his wife at all costs, even if must happen at the expense of his own peace of mind. ~ Nathan Southern, All Movie Guide
