Le Anne of Tinsel And Tine84 - She has a loving husband, John, also a professor (Alec Baldwin) and 3 adult children who are in good places in their lives - eldest daughter, Anna (Kate Bosworth) is ready to start a family, their son Tom (Hunter Parrish) is in med school, and youngest Lydia (Kristen Stewart) is in LA with dreams of becoming an actress. Alice and John raised their family in a nice, above average, but homey house. For instance, instead of a toothbrush holder, they use a tall coffee mug in the bathroom. The family also has a house at the beach. It all seems like the time in life when you can finally coast and enjoy the ride... But for Alice that ride is a road to early onset Alzheimer's.
