PIECE OF ME cover image
Piece of Me is an excellent short film that offers an excellent inside look at one of most heartbreaking diseases. It showcasing the effects of Alzheimer's on those affected from many angles. In just twenty minutes, tears are guaranteed!

The film follows a caretaker's son who befriends an elderly woman with dementia and, as she loses her memory, he tries his best to be a reminder of her past.

I love that the story shows many perspectives of Alzheimer's Disease. From loved ones, to those actually affected. The camera work is excellent. One shot I especially love is where they are doing a puzzle and the pieces outline the frame. The costumes and sets are very simple and suite the story. The music is well written and helps create a warm tone to the film. The two leading actors are excellent. They perfectly capture their respective character's emotions. My favorite part is the ending! It is personal and well executed.

The message of this film is about the importance of caring for your loved ones and appreciating the time you have with them.

I give Piece of Me 5 out of 5 stars and recommend it to ages 12 to 18, plus adults. I felt it very personally as dementia runs in my family and, where you are familiar with the disease or not, you will feel an emotional connection. Reviewed by Erin M., KIDS FIRST! Film Critic.
