As a nonprofit organization and community leader in dementia care, Montefiore has partnered with producers of the film documentary, “Glen Campbell: I”ll Be Me,” to spread the word that the 5.5 million affected by Alzheimer’s and the more than 15 million caregivers negotiating the everyday difficulties are not alone.
“One of the most remarkable documentaries in recent years. You do not want to miss this movie.”
–Richard Roeper, Film Critic, Chicago Sun-Times
View this three minute trailer and see firsthand why this film is so important:
In 2011, music legend Glen Campbell set out on an unprecedented tour across America. They thought it would last 5 weeks, instead it went for 151 spectacular, sold-out shows over a triumphant year-and-a-half across America.
What made this tour extraordinary was that Glen had recently been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease. He was told to hang up his guitar and prepare for the inevitable. Instead, Glen and his wife went public with his diagnosis and announced that he and his family would set out on a “Goodbye Tour.”
“In a year of moving docs, ‘Glen Campbell: I’ll Be Me’ may take the cake – and an Oscar nomination.”
–Scott Feinberg, The Hollywood Reporter
The film documents this amazing journey as he and his family attempt to navigate the wildly unpredictable nature of Glen’s progressing disease using love, laughter and music as their medicine of choice.
Special appearances include Bruce Springsteen, The Edge, Paul McCartney, Blake Shelton, Sheryl Crow, Keith Urban, Brad Paisley, Taylor Swift, Steve Martin, Chad Smith and Bill Clinton among many others.
