Iris - March 2002


A story about noted British author Iris Murdoch, told in parallel tracks: in her 20s when she meets her husband; and in her 60s, when she contracts Alzheimer’s Disease. I had not heard of Iris Murdoch before seeing the movie, but she had quite a resume- author of 28 novels and countless articles, and was a respected professor. A movie about a person dying of Alzheimer's sounds grim, but Iris celebrates an unusual and remarkable life.
