Actress and now very talented director, Sarah Polley has a new documentary that premiered last fall in Toronto. Stories We Tell received a good deal of critical praise as it made its way around the festival circuit last playing in Sundance. Here are our thoughts on the film out of Toronto.
Polley’s documentary focuses on her own history and family, specifically a family secret, as interpreted by members of Polley’s storyteller family. It looks like a complicated and fascinating view on family histories and the ways in which individuals can interpret truths.
The film was picked up by Roadside out of Toronto and will be released on May 10th in New York and then will hit other cities including Los Angeles on May 17th.
