AFI offers the usual slew of sympathetic losers, but a good measure of Zooey

The fest's closer is an even more wrenching selection: Sarah Polley's Away From Her, about a woman (the extraordinary Julie Christie) who succumbs to Alzheimer's, checks into a nursing home and begins a relationship with another man. Her husband (Gordon Pinsent) is left to grieve the memory of a wonderful marriage that might not have been as he recalled it. In this extraordinary film from the actress-turned-director, which is based on an Alice Munro story, being able to retain a memory can be more painful than losing all of them.
