Stories We Tell
Opens Jul 19, 2013
Every family has its dark secrets but not many can compare with Sarah Polley's delightful, twisty and emotionally acute investigation of her parents' hidden history. With a devastating knack for encouraging relatives and family friends to speak truthfully, Polley elucidates the layers of craft, manipulation, and even deceit that all storytellers use to reinvent ourselves and our world.
"An invigorating powerhouse of a personal documentary, adventurous and absolutely fascinating." (Kenneth Turan, The Los Angeles Times)
