Stories We Tell

In this inspired new film, Oscar-nominated writer/director Sarah Polley discovers that the truth depends on who's telling it. Polley is both filmmaker and detective as she investigates the secrets kept by a family of storytellers. She playfully interviews and interrogates a cast of characters of varying reliability, eliciting refreshingly candid, yet mostly contradictory, answers to the same questions. As each relates their version of the family mythology, present-day recollections shift into nostalgia-tinged glimpses of their mother, who departed too soon, leaving a trail of unanswered questions. Polley unravels the paradoxes to reveal the essence of family: always complicated, warmly messy and fiercely loving. 'Stories We Tell' explores the elusive nature of truth and memory, but at its core is a deeply personal film about how our narratives shape and define us as individuals and families, all interconnecting to paint a profound, funny and poignant picture of the larger human story.
Warmly received when the film world premiered at the Venice Film Festival, then in its North American premieres at Telluride, Toronto and most recently at the Sundance Film Festival, 'Stories We Tell' will screen next month as part of the prestigious New Directors/New Films at MoMA in New York before Roadside Attractions releases the film in theaters on May 17th.
