Beliefnet
Idol Chatter

away-from-her_idol.jpgSeveral weeks ago I posted a review of the indie film “Away From Her” and its authentic but painful portrayal of Alzheimer’s disease. Many Beliefnet readers responded to that post with their own accounts of their struggles in caring for someone with the disease, which I found touching and inspiring.
Several readers also wondered when the film would be out on DVD, so I wanted to make sure to announce that it is available starting today. I hope despite the difficult nature of this film, many more people will discover this movie now that it is on DVD, and that it watching will spark even more discussion on the issues surrounding the treatment and care of those afflicted with this illness.
