Nancy Churnin Recommends

British playwright Carey Jane Hardy's touching tale explores the sadness of Alzheimer's, with focus on a caregiver, Amy (Octavia Y. Thomas), who unexpectedly finds herself with a last chance at romance (from Gregory, an antique book expert played by Robert San Juan). Non-verbal volumes are spoken as Thomas and San Juan exchange longing looks across the gulf of seemingly impossible circumstances. Amy's difficulty in putting her needs before others, much like some of the characters in 'Ivanhoe,' the book that brings Gregory into Amy's life, is a reminder of the quixotic quest on which caregivers embark for those they love.

Amy cares for her Aunt Sylvia who has Alzheimer’s. She is so devoted to her aunt that she finds herself seriously tested when she meets and falls in love with Gregory. So begins a touching love story in which Amy begins to see that a different, happier life is possible. Rated PG
