  • Stories We Tell

    2012. Canada. Directed by Sarah Polley. What is real? What is true? What do we remember, and how do we remember it? Actor/director Sarah Polley turns from fiction to nonfiction, cracking open family secrets in the process. Using home movies, still photographs, and interviews, Polley delves into the life of her mother, a creative yet secretive woman. But while she is talking to her own relatives, Polley’s interest lies in the bigger question of what families hold onto as truth. Stories We Tell is a delicately crafted personal essay about memory, loss, and understanding. Courtesy of Roadside Attractions. 108 min.
