What They Had is a movie that frightened me a little bit as I saw this happening with my grandfather, and as I'm starting to forget things myself. Alzeimer's disease isn't a pleasant thing, not for the patient but even lesser for his/her family and friends. Seeing somebody that you knew as smart suddenly forget all kind of elementary things isn't a pretty thing to witness. So this movie is touching for a lot of people as we all know somebody with that disease. The story is about how the whole family tries to cope in their way with the disease. The cast was very good, especially Michael Shannon as Nick. What They Had will bring some tears to a few people as they will remember or recognise situations from the movie, that will bring back memories from loved ones that died with Alzeimer's disease.
