Stories We Tell - DVD Preview

Stories We Tell

Preview by Jack Foley

INSPIRED, inspiring, tender and touching, Stories We Tell is a brilliant documentary portrait of a complicated yet deeply loving family from Oscar®-nominated writer/director Sarah Polley (Away From Her).

Taking her cue from a family joke about not resembling her father, Polley sets out to uncover the truth about her mysterious mother and her own uncertain lineage.

Playfully yet pointedly interrogating a cast of blood relatives and family friends, she slowly pieces together a puzzle of conflicting stories, myths and memories until she makes a discovery that will shake her family to the core.

At once an exploration of the function of storytelling, the elusive nature of truth and what it means to be part of a family, Stories We Tell is funny, profound, poignant and one of the most original films of the year.

Stories We Tell is released on DVD on Monday, September 23, 2013
