Iris (2001)

Judi Dench, Jim Broadbent and Kate Winslet have all been nominated for Academy Awards for their work on this humble, touching biopic about British novelist Iris Murdoch. The film chronicles the 40-year love affair between Murdoch and her husband John Bayley. Winslet plays the author during her young, libertine days at Oxford, while Dench tackles the character in her later, declining years. Late in life, Murdoch was diagnosed with Alzheimer's Disease, and the film shows us both the tragedy of this cruel disease and the abiding love her husband showed in sticking by the stricken writer. Despite the emotions on display, the film dever feels maudlin or weepy--sentiments, it seems, that would only be a disservice to the indomitable spirit that was Iris Murdoch. 90 minutes
