Critics reviews

[On a second viewing,] it turns out there is genuine heartbreak in Away from Her, authentically evoked, but it’s of the studied, poetic variety. It’s essentially about marriage, not disease; Alzheimer’s is the threat to the relationship of Christie’s Fiona and Gordon Pinsent’s Grant, but one gets the sense that the film could have been about any major obstacle to their happiness—a car accident, cancer, an affair.
