Director: Sarah Polley
StoriesWeTell1webActress/director Sarah Polley sets out to learn more about her mysterious late mother in this moving, intelligent documentary. The relatives and friends she speaks with start digging into a shared past that grows more complex, surprising and touching with each recollection. Polley’s goal isn’t to settle scores or indulge in self-mythology but rather,to unearth the details of a seemingly ordinary life and it’s many hidden layers. 2012, Canada, 108 minutes, documentary, rated PG-13 for sexual references, language

“Sarah Polley’s memoir is a poignant, funny and engrossing film, challenging our notions of memory and family mythology.” – Claudia Puig, USA Today

“Stories We Tell has a number of transparent virtues, including its humor and formal design, although its most admirable quality is the deep sense of personal ethics that frames Ms. Polley’s filmmaking choices.” – Manohla Dargis,The New York Times

NY Times Critics’ Pick

“With its ingenious structure, seamless visual conceits and mordant humor, Stories We Tell is a masterful film on technical and aesthetic values alone. But because of the wisdom and compassion of its maker, it rises to another level entirely.” – Ann Hornaday, Washington Post

“An invigorating powerhouse of a personal documentary, adventurous and absolutely fascinating.”  – Kenneth Turan,Los Angeles Times

    I had a good time and thought the movie was interesting. The message I got out of the movie was, if you love somebody nothing else matters. So although her father was not her biological father it didn't matter to him. He still loved his daughter. And even if she had an affair he still loved his wife...and then the most significant statement was at the end.....and he continues to go on.

    Wonderful. I enjoyed the walk by the Hudson and seeing some old friends and meeting new ones. The Restaurant had delicious food and the portions were more than generous - was able to take a little doggy bag back for my Mom. The movie was interesting, but I need to remember to bring a thick seating cushion with me if I go there again.
    Thanks Susan, for another wonderful day - it was nice to see everyone again and meet new friends.

    Delicious dinner, company and well performed movie with an interesting twist. As for the daughters getting divorced, once they realized their Mother had not been able to fulfill her dreams before the end of her life, I believe they decided to escape from their own disillusioned lives and seek their own happiness while they still had time as life they learned is so fleeting. Thats; my take on it anyway!

    Tarantella's is a nice informal dinner setting with good service. Movie was interesting take on a family wrestling with difficult issues. Didn't descend into schmaltzy sentiment. Why was it all the daughters got divorced? Didn't quite get that part.
